Should I buy Medicare Supplement Insurance or Medicare Advantage ?

There are several options for you to consider carefully when choosing what kind of Medicare plan is right for you. Medicare Advantage plans have little or no copayments for many services and normally offer either low premium or zero monthly premiums. Most also include prescription drug coverage. They are available as either a PPO type plan or a managed care HMO type plan. The HMO plans typically allow you to access only providers on their published list.

With a Medicare supplement plan you do not have a network or list of providers - you can go to most any doctor, hospital, medical facility or treatment center nationwide without any needed referrals or approval. Under Medicare, you are not required to pay over the contracted rate for billed services provided the practitioner or facility accepts Medicare assignment.

There is a premium payable to the insurance company monthly and a supplemental plan does not include prescription drug coverage. Prescription drug plans also known as Medicare Part D are offered for as little as $17.00 a month.
