What Is Medicare Advantage?
Medicare Advantage (Part C) is the private insurance option offered by the Medicare program. Medicare Advantage plans must provide the same minimum coverage as Original Medicare, meaning you won’t be missing out on the essential benefits.
How To Get Medicare Advantage?
To get Medicare Advantage, you must find an insurance company that sells the plan, then apply for the plan. If you aren’t yet enrolled in Original Medicare, you’ll need to enroll first. This can be done online, by mail, over the phone, or in person.
Once you’re enrolled in Medicare and have found a plan, you go through the application process. This process typically doesn’t include a health exam, although it may in some cases. Once you’ve been accepted to a plan, you pay your premiums to maintain coverage.
Who Is Eligible For Medicare Advantage?
People who are enrolled in Medicare can purchase Medicare Advantage plans. Though, some people below age 65 may be unable to find a Medicare Advantage plan. This varies depending on location.
Generally, all Medicare beneficiaries can be eligible for Medicare Advantage. This includes people above age 65 and people diagnosed with qualifying disabilities.
