What Options Exist?
The plans they offer may be 1) traditional Medicare Supplement coverage 2) Medicare Advantage Plans or 3) Stand alone Prescription Drug Plans (Medicare Part D)
Medicare supplements plans provide benefits that cover the gaps that Medicare itself does not cover while Medicare Advantage plans replace Medicare, however you will need to be enrolled in both Medicare parts A & B in order to enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan.
If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you do not need a Medicare supplemental insurance plan as well since they provide basically the same benefits, plus in some cases more. Compare quotes to help find an affordable Medicare supplemental insurance plan or Medicare Advantage plan today.
