About Medicare Advantage:

  • With Medicare Advantage, Rhode Island Medicare recipients can choose to have their benefits distributed to a private third-party provider of their choice. This provider then in turn will offer the services that Original Medicare would have otherwise provided.
  • There are many options that need to be considered before enrolling in a plan, as each plan features different rules and regulations.
  • Some plans charge a higher premium than others, and some will only partially cover the Medicare Part B premium, while others will cover it in full. It’s important that you discuss these things when you speak to an agent about enrolling in Medicare Advantage.
  • You are still enrolled in the Medicare Program if you opt for Medicare Advantage.
  • Medicare Advantage includes Medicare Parts A and B, like Original Medicare - sometimes Part D is covered under Medicare Advantage.
