Medicare Advantage 101

Medicare Advantage plans combine the coverage of Original Medicare Parts A and B into one plan, often called Part C. And they usually offer additional benefits and perks on top of Original Medicare.

Most Medicare Advantage plans also include Part D prescription drug coverage. With a Medicare Advantage plan, you get the convenience of having all your Medicare coverage in one plan.

When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you will no longer receive Parts A and B coverage through Original Medicare. Instead, the company you purchase your Medicare Advantage plan from will administer those benefits along with any additional coverage the plan offers.

You must be enrolled in Original Medicare Parts A and B before you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.

Medicare Advantage plans often include features and benefits that you don’t get with Original Medicare, including:

  • Prescription drugs (Part D)
  • Dental care
  • Travel coverage
  • Services like routine eye exams and hearing exams
  • Fitness programs to keep you healthy
  • Costs for in-network doctor visits and covered services that are usually lower than Original Medicare

Most Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage.

As you look at plans, take note how each one covers prescription drugs so you can choose the right plan for your needs.

Like most health insurance plans, Medicare Advantage plans have a network of doctors, providers, clinics and hospitals. In general, HMO plans have the smallest networks, while PPO and PFFS plans have larger networks.

Covering care within a defined provider network helps plans keep costs low. This is why Medicare Advantage plans can often offer lower costs for in-network doctor visits and covered services than Original Medicare.

  • Annual Enrollment Period: October 15 to December 7 – During Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan for the first time or switch to a different plan. You can also drop your plan and go back to Original Medicare. Coverage from any new plan starts on January 1 of the next year.
  • Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period: January 1 to March 31 – If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you have an opportunity to change plans between January 1 and March 31 each year. You can switch to a different Medicare Advantage plan or go back to Original Medicare.
  • Initial Enrollment Period: When you turn 65 – If you sign up for Original Medicare during your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP), you can enroll in a private Medicare plan anytime after you’ve signed up for Original Medicare and are still in your IEP.
  • Special Enrollment Period (SEP) – After certain events, such as moving or losing your current Medicare plan, you may qualify for an SEP that allows you to enroll in a different plan.
  • Five-star Special Enrollment Period: December 8 to November 30 – If the plan you want to enroll in has a five-star rating, you can make a one-time switch from your current plan between December 8 and November 30.

Medicare plan features that go the extra mile

At HealthPartners, we believe that a great Medicare Advantage plan goes beyond excellent benefits and perks. We go further by making it easier to get the most out of your plan with flexible options for getting the care you need and help managing costs.

All Medicare Advantage plans include unlimited, no-cost visits to our online clinic Virtuwell. At Virtuwell, you can get a diagnosis, treatment plan and prescription for more than 60 common conditions – all online with no appointments, waiting rooms or video calls.

Our plans have clear limits on how much you pay out of pocket for your care each year. It’s a spending cap that provides peace of mind and protection for your wallet.

We work to bring more to our plans this year and every year – making sure that your plan fits the way you live today, tomorrow and beyond.
