What Are the Benefits of a Medicare Advantage PPO Plan?
A Medicare Advantage plan offers more benefits than Original Medicare with minimal to no extra premium. These advantages can be:
- Fitness memberships
- Over-the-counter drugs
- Adult day-care services
- Transportation to doctor’s offices
- Nutrition and wellness programs
- And more
Whether you are eligible for some benefits depends on your area and plan providers. However, there are unique upsides to having a PPO Advantage plan. First, you do not need a referral to visit a specialist, and you do not have to choose a primary care physician. Next, most PPO Advantage plans cover prescription drugs. To see which benefits are available in your area, you should talk to a licensed Medicare insurance specialist.
