Medicare Advantage*

“All in 1” or “Part C”: Plans offered by private companies approved by Medicare. Includes Part A and Part B and, generally, Part D. Most plans offer extra benefits such as Dental, Vision, OTC, and others. The services are mainly covered in the carrier network. Some plans may require referral to see Specialists. Most of the plans have a $0 or low monthly premium.

Medicare Supplement

The most popular plans are F, G, N and C. Original Medicare Beneficiaries obtain expense coverage (generally 20%) of services covered by Medicare Part A and Part B that Original Medicare doesn’t cover. You can go to any nationwide provider that accept Medicare – no referral required. Does not include drug coverage. You will pay a monthly premium that will increase over the time. Cannot be combined with Medicare Advantage plans.

Health Insurance

Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare”. You may qualify for goverment subsidy (On Exchange), or pay for the full monthly premium (Off Exchange). The Open Enrollment Period (OEP) for ACA is when you normally can obtain a new plan; it starts on November 1st through January 15th in most states of USA. You may enroll after OEP if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. Small Business with 1 or more employees can obtain health insurance anytime in most states. Compare plans and shop here!
