You can consider simplifying your health insurance benefits by choosing a Medicare Advantage plan. Medicare preventive plans cover many of the original benefits you received under Medicare, such as health insurance coverage, deductibles and copying. Many Advantage plans also include Medicare coverage of prescription drugs (sometimes called Medicare Part D) for prescription drugs.
You may hear your health care provider refer to your Medicare Advantage Plan as “Part C,” but it is actually a Medicare Part D plan.
These plans replace Part D and offer additional benefits compared to traditional Medicare premiums, and many times they offer numerous other benefits that are not covered by traditional Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans are offered by many insurance companies as an alternative to traditional Medicaid and Medicare Part D plans. These plans can often include benefits such as deductibles, co-payments, co-payments and other costs. Currently, Medicare benefit plans sell for less than $1,000 a month for a family of four or less.
Starting in 2019, most Medicare Advantage participants will have access to benefits that are not covered by traditional Medicare. Nearly eight in ten of us have access to dental health, fitness and eyesight services, and nearly seven in ten benefit from health insurance.
Medicare Advantage plans are generally required to offer at least one plan that covers the Part D drug benefit. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), 90% of Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription drug coverage as a benefit selected by their enrollees. According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation study, the average deductible for prescription drugs is $121 for a Medicare benefit plan.
Premiums are lower this year, more insurers are offering plans, and Medicare Advantage had higher satisfaction rates, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation study.
Medicare beneficiaries compared health care choices and star ratings, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Each year, CMS publishes measures of beneficiaries “experience, including satisfaction with their health insurance coverage, premiums, deductibles, and premiums and benefits. More than 1.5 million people in Florida, the nation’s third-largest state, are projected to enroll in Medicare Advantage in 2020.
In the 1970s, Medicare recipients behaved as if they were receiving their Medicare benefits through the traditional federal Medicare program. Now, called Medicare Advantage Plans, private health plans receive capitalized payments for providing Medicare – covered services to plan enrollments.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, it will total $250 billion by 2021, or 33% of total Medicare spending.
Over the past decade, Medicare payment policies and plans have shifted from one that produced savings to one that focused more on expanding access to private plans and providing additional services to Medicare and private plan enrollment across the country, to one that produces savings. Those policy changes have led to more insurers offering more plans, and enrollment in Medicare Advantage has increased nationwide.
As of 2019, the majority of Medicare’s 64 million people will be covered by traditional Medicare, but a third (34%) are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan. Switching from traditional Medicare to Medicare benefits can be confusing, and there are many different types of plans available to people with different payment policies. It can also help to understand what a PPO or HMO might mean, as well as the difference between a traditional plan and a Medicare plan, such as a plan with deductible or co-pay.
