Medicare is a form of federal health insurance offered administered by the Social Security Administration. Medicare was designed to provide health care for senior citizens. While most participants normally choose an original medicare plan, other opt for the Medicare Advantage plan, or a Medicare Private plan. These plans are contracted through the government and must pay a fixed amount per participant to provide Medicare services. The two most common Medicare Advantage programs are Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) and Preferred Provider Organizations. Medicare premiums are far less expensive than that of a policy from a typical health insurance provider, making it more budget friendly for retired and senior citizens, who may be living on a fixed income. Each Medicare Advantage plan must include an out-of-pocket expenses limit. This means, that the participant will need to either reach this amount before Medicare will pay for a certain service, of that this is the maximum amount that the individual will be required to pay. If you enroll in Medicare Advantage, you are still a participant of Medicare which means that your more costly procedures will be covered under this plan, making it less costly for you.
Joining a Medicare Advantage plan is simple, and there are many plan options available. If you are currently a Medicare part A and B participant, live within the plan provider’s service area, and do not have End-Stage Renal Disease you are eligible to enroll.
