CHOOSING MEDIGAP

Plans have letter designations, so every plan with every insurance company is the same. All plans pay some, or all of Medicare’s part B 20% cost share. Plan F, the most popular plan pays 100% of the balance owed after Medicare pays.

Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug

MAPD Medicare Advantage Plans, often referred to as MAPD (Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug), are a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private insurance company that has a contract with Medicare (the government) to provide all your Part A and Part B benefits.

Many Medicare Advantage Plans also offer prescription drug coverage as a part of the plan, otherwise it’s just an MA. These plans often have better access to drugs or lower copays.

When you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan, so your Medicare services aren’t paid for by Original Medicare but rather through the plan.

Medicare Advantage plans also offer many extra benefits such gym memberships or free dental. Often an MAPD has no premium above your Medicare Part B premium. These are great plans for people who are looking to save money on monthly premiums and get higher quality care.

The Annual Election Period for choosing one of these great plans ends on 12/6. If you would like to learn more about MAPD’s please call Aaron Ware at 775-881-8796.
