As you probably know by now Medicare alone has significant out of pocket cost that must be paid on your part to doctors and hospitals. One option to protect yourself is to choose a Medicare Supplement or Medigap policy.
If you join a Medicare Advantage plan, you are telling the government you want a private company to administer your health benefits. With most Medicare Advantage plans you have significantly less out of pocket than original Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans may also offer preventative eye exams, glasses, dental, and transportation that are not covered under original Medicare.
In 2006 Medicare stated the part D prescription drug program directly through Medicare. If you wish to elect a part D drug program you must choose an insurance company to carry this for you.
