Longview, TX Medicare Advantage Plans
Although Original Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B make a big difference in the lives of many seniors, Original Medicare is not enough if you want the sort of comprehensive coverage that can see you through a health crisis.
Original Medicare was never designed to cover 100% of your healthcare costs. If you depend on Original Medicare alone, gaps in your Medicare coverage will be evident sooner than you realize. You will be responsible for the Medicare Part A deductible, which in some cases you can be obligated to pay several times a year. You will also be responsible for the Medicare Part B deductible, the 20% coinsurance for your Part B charges, and more.
All the out-of-pocket costs associated with Original Medicare can play havoc with your budget—and some seniors have been ruined financially because they had no health coverage other than Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B.
People who want to be prepared for whatever might come their way often choose Medicare Advantage plans.
Also called Medicare Part C plans, Medicare Advantage plans are offered by Medicare-approved private companies to seniors in Longview and throughout the Lone Star State. If you are already enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B, you have the option of replacing your Part A and Part B coverage with similar coverage provided by your Part C plan. But that is just the beginning. Medicare Advantage can go further by covering a wide range of services—dental, vision, hearing, and prescription drugs to name just a few—that Original Medicare cannot. Longview Medicare Advantage plans also go hand-in-hand with Medicare preventive services by requiring no cost-sharing in most cases for Medicare-covered preventive services including mammograms and prostate exams. Medicare Advantage plans also typically cover annual physical exams.
