Hospital bills, prescription medicines, and other medical expenses can really add up as we get older. One of the Medicare Advantage Plans might just be what you need to cover the expenses that Medicare doesn’t.  Plus, if you have a pre-existing condition, Medicare Advantage Plans are still easy to get.
Since the federal government pays part of the premium on Medicare Advantage Plans, which are also known as Medicare Part C, the premiums may be very inexpensive. Compared to what Medicare offers, Medicare Advantage Plans typically offer more extensive benefits.  An Advantage Plan may cover not only your dental needs, but vision services, as well.  Advantage Plans may even include prescription coverage, but not all plans pay for every kind of medication.
If you are interested in Medicare Advantage Plans, you need to carefully review the rules of these plans.  Advantage Plans are much more individualized than Medicare Supplement Insurance, which has been standardized by law.  If you need prescription medication, you need to carefully check which medicines are covered by your plan.
