Living on a fixed income can be challenging.

Unexpected medical costs can add up quickly without the right insurance coverage. When Original Medicare (Medicare Parts A and B) doesn’t cut it, explore the option of a Medicare Advantage plan. It offers many of the benefits of a traditional PPO (Preferred Provider Option) or HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) plan and typically costs less than often costs less than Original Medicare.

What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?

Medicare Advantage plans are an alternative to Original Medicare and Medicare Part D. Medicare Advantage health insurance plans, also called “MA Plans” or “Part C”, are offered by private Medicare-approved companies. Besides hospice care, Medicare Advantage plans cover everything Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) covers and more.

The 2017 maximum out-of-pocket limit for Medicare Advantage enrollees is $6,700.
