The Medicare Advantage plan

You can choose a Medicare Advantage plan instead of Original Medicare, but there are some important differences that you should know about before you enroll.

As an Advantage plan member, you won't pay a premium for Medicare Part B or Medicare Part D, but you may have to pay a Medicare Advantage plan premium.

The monthly cost of this Medicare Advantage plan depends on the plan you choose. Some plans have a high monthly premium but have strong networks of doctors and hospitals for members to use. Other plans have lower premiums but offer a limited network of doctors and hospitals. Advantage plans may also include extra benefits or extra costs that you should be aware of before you enroll.

The Medicare Advantage plan is also an HMO, but not every Medicare Advantage plan is an HMO.

To enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you must be eligible for Original Medicare. This means you're 65 or older, or you have ALS, ESRD or end-stage renal disease.

You don't have to be eligible for Original Medicare to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.

You can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan from the same time you enroll in Medicare Part B. You can also enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan any time of year, but your coverage may not start until January of the next year.

Medicare Advantage plans are not available in all areas of the country.

Medicare Advantage plans are HMOs, but not every Medicare Advantage plan is an HMO.

Many Medicare Advantage plans require members to get care only from doctors and hospitals that are in the Medicare Advantage plan's network. If you get care from any doctor or hospital that's not in this plan's network, your costs may be higher.

There are other things to consider when choosing a Medicare Advantage plan.

The Medicare Advantage plan's medical and drug coverage must be at least as good as Original Medicare's.
