Medicare Advantage policies provide additional benefits that aren’t available through Original Medicare. Beneficiaries can purchase these policies from private insurance companies and customize them to meet their specific health care needs.
There are different types of Medicare Advantage policies, including PPOs, HMOs, fee-for-service plans, special needs plans, and medical saving accounts. One of the key differences between these types of Medicare Advantage policies is how they’re covered.
A PPO provides a network of coverage, which means the beneficiary is covered by a network of physicians and facilities approved under a plan. It’s important to note that individuals that stay within the network won’t have to pay any unexpected expenses. Medicare advantage providers can charge different amounts and have different rules.
An HMO has a network of pre-approved service providers that cover beneficiaries. However, individuals must choose a primary care physician. In an HMO, the primary physician serves as both the beneficiary’s leading doctor and health care coordinator. Also, the primary physician must provide a specialist referral if necessary.

We enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan last year, and we couldn’t be happier with our policy.
The process was quite simple, and we were able to enroll over the phone. A licensed insurance agent helped us choose a policy that made sense for both of us.

We spoke with a licensed insurance agent who took the time to explain everything we needed to know and how it all worked. We also discovered a policy that covered all our drug prescription needs.
