What do they cost?

Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are another way to get Original Medicare (Parts A and B).

The government pays a private insurance company you select to manage your care.

You pay:

  • Part A premiums (if any).
  • Part B premiums.
  • The MA plan's premium (if any): 2020 plans and prices.
  • Any deductibles, copays, or coinsurance.

What do these plans cover?

MA plans cover all medically-necessary care covered by Original Medicare.

Some plans include prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D) and:

  • Vision and hearing exams.
  • Dental care (may charge additional premium).
  • Foot care.
  • Yearly routine exams.
  • Wellness classes.
