Medicare supplement plans are standardized by the government and cover all or most of the health costs that Medicare doesn’t cover. These plans allow you to see any doctor, hospital or provider that accepts Medicare. We represent most of the major carriers in the US and can help you understand and evaluate your options.
Part D - Prescription Drug Plans
Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage is a US government subsidized program. It is available through private insurance carriers that are contracted by Medicare and available as a stand alone plan or included in a Medicare Advantage plan. Part D plans can only be purchased during certain times of year and you must have a Part D drug plan, or other creditable coverage, when you become eligible in order to avoid a late-enrollment penalty.
Part C - Medicare Advantage
Medicare Advantage plans are a type of Medicare health plan that is offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare. Plans provide all your Part A and B benefits and are paid for by the insurance company and not Medicare. These plans often offer additional benefits and prescription drug coverage. They offer HMO (Health Maintenance Organization), PPO (Preferred Provider Organization), PFFS (Private Fee-for-Service) and SNP (Special Needs) plans. Plans are available based on your location and not all play types are available in all areas. We represent all the major carriers and can help you determine whether an Advantage plan is right for you.
Medicare Part A & B
