What Medicare Advantage Covers
You are still enrolled in Original Medicare under Medicare Part C. But, Medicare Advantage Plans can offer benefits that Original Medicare does not cover, like:
- Vision coverage
- Dental coverage
- Prescription drug coverage
- Caregiver counseling and training
Medicare Part C Cost
Some Medicare Advantage plans have no premiums. But this does mean free.
Medicare pays a monthly amount to the insurer to provide your care. This is how premiums can be at zero cost to you. Ron Ray is a Medicare Part C specialist, so talk to him to see which plans you can qualify for.
Medicare Part C Enrollment Periods
You can enroll in an MA plan when you initially get Medicare Part B. You can also enroll during the annual election period every fall, from October 15 to December 7. Your benefits start on January 1.
