Medicare Advantage Plans
Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people ages 65 or older, or for others younger than 65 who have certain disabilities or meet specific qualifications.
Medicare is made up of four parts:
Offers limited coverage for inpatient costs such as hospital stays or hospice benefits, and may also include some home-health care benefits.
Offers limited coverage for outpatient costs such as certain treatments administered in a doctor’s office, the cost of medical supplies and some ambulance and preventive services.
Provided by private companies approved by Medicare, the plans cover the same services as Part A and Part B. Medicare Advantage plans can also include prescription drug coverage (Part D) and may offer extra coverage, such as vision and hearing care, dental services, and wellness programs.
Optional coverage offered by private companies like WellCare to ensure all Medicare eligible beneficiaries have access to coverage to help with the cost of a broad range of prescription drugs.
