More on Medicare Advantage in Georgia
Medicare Advantage in Georgia refers to any number of private Part C plans that are available from private insurers that replace Original Medicare Parts A and B. Part C can also include Medicare supplement plans, such as prescription drug coverage, dental, and vision.
Part C plans are not only convenient and let you get all of your coverage from just one source, but they also have the potential to cost less than the premiums you'd pay for Medicare supplement or Part D prescription coverage. Medicare Part D can be purchased, however, if a Medicare eligible enrollee decides to stay with Original Medicare.
There are other reasons that those eligible for Medicare may be better suited for Medicare Advantage in Georgia. Residents can sometimes get benefits that Original Medicare doesn't offer by taking out a Part C plan. For example, many dental, wellness, hearing and vision plans are offered by Medicare Advantage companies but not Original Medicare. The tradeoff is that many Part C plans limit the doctors that you can see, but generally offer a broad range of doctors and specialists to choose from.
