InnovaCare Provides Quality Medicare Advantage Plan Services

Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, is regular Medicare coverage where the services are done through approved private insurance companies. By law, they must provide everything. Therefore, people on Medicare Advantage plans do not require Medigap plans.

The concept of letting private medical insurance companies treat patients better than regular Medicare plans allows goes back to 1997 under another name. In 2003 the government revised the program and passed the law authorizing Medicare Advantage programs.

They must provide all the regular Medicare coverage: Part A (hospitalization) and Part B (physicians). Some also cover Part D (prescription drugs).

They are also allowed to compete for patients by offering services not covered under the regular Medicare programs.

The most common types of Medicare Advantage Plan providers are Private Fee for Service plans, Health Maintenance Organizations and Preferred Provider Organizations.

There are different costs for Medicare Advantage plans, such as copayments or additional costs for services Medicare doesn’t provide.

To avoid having to pay out of pocket for the gaps in Medicare coverage, many seniors choose to purchase Medigap insurance policies, which pay for treatments Medicare does not.

Therefore, there is always a cost if you wish coverage beyond standard Medicare, so you have to compare the costs and benefits.
