Medicare Advantage plans are a way for beneficiaries to get healthcare outside of Medicare, and there are many options available.
Through one of the Medicare Advantage plans, out-of-pocket expenses can be significantly lowered, with many plans offered with zero premium.
If you are still struggling to pay for your healthcare costs, it might be time for you to look at your plan options and search for Medicare Advantage plans in 2022.
When you first are eligible for Medicare, you have a few different options you can go with. One is to remain with Medicare Part A and B (Original Medicare), with nothing else. Very few people do this.
Another option is to remain with Original Medicare and add a Medigap plan to it.
The third option is to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. According to kff.org, over 26 million people are currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan and this is only expected to keep rising.
Advantage plans provide coverage that Medicare Part A and B provide, but may also include additional benefits such as dental, vision, hearing aids, and gym memberships.
