2023 Medicare Cost plans in Wisconsin

Medicare Cost plans that put you first

HealthPartners® Freedom WI (Cost) plans are a great way to get more from Medicare. These plans feature extra perks and benefits not included with Original Medicare. Plus, you’ll receive coverage from a trusted network of health care experts – including more than 65,000 doctors and clinicians at thousands of care locations – while enjoying the flexibility to see any provider who accepts Medicare.

Your Medicare plan should help you live healthier, and that’s why with our plans, your needs always come first:

Our Medicare network includes HealthPartners and Park Nicollet, Lakeview Hospital, Hudson Hospital & Clinic, Amery Hospital & Clinic, Westfields Hospital & Clinic, Allina Health, M Health Fairview and many more care systems. Through Original Medicare, you’ll also have coverage when you see any provider across the U.S. who accepts Medicare.

Most plans include coverage for routine hearing exams, options for hearing aids through TruHearing® (enhanced for 2023), routine vision exams, and a gym membership and home fitness kit through our partnership with SilverSneakers®.

It’s easy to find an option that fits your budget. And depending on the plan you choose, you may be able to add on comprehensive dental coverage, or benefit riders that cover additional home health care, chiropractic care and skilled nursing facility care. More options mean you can customize your coverage based on what you’re looking for.

We know it’s important to talk to a medical expert whenever you need one, which is exactly why members have access to unlimited, no-cost visits to 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.

Enjoying the snowbird or RV life? All plans include in-network coverage for up to nine months of annual domestic travel. You’ll also have access to pre-travel consultations and worldwide emergency and urgent care coverage, with additional assistance through Assist America®.*
