Choosing Plans Under Medicare Advantage in Washington
Medicare Advantage in Washington includes the benefits of Part A (hospital) and Part B (medical) Medicare into one plan, which is known as Part C. Medicare Advantage generally covers things that Parts A and B do not, which is why more people are turning to Medicare Advantage instead of Original Medicare. Depending on the plan chosen, there are a slew of different benefits available under Part C Medicare Advantage.
Benefits of Medicare Advantage in Washington
For those who are Medicare eligible, it can be advantageous to choose a plan under Medicare Advantage. Washington HealthMarkets representatives can point you towards a plan that can let you enjoy benefits that you ordinarily wouldn't enjoy under Original, including:
- Hearing, vision and dental benefits. Under original Medicare, no one is given benefits for hearing, vision, or dental, but many Part C plans under Medicare Advantage in Washington offer various benefits that can help you pay for glasses, hearing aids, and even dental care.
- Prescription drug coverage. Most, but not all, Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription drug coverage. This is not available under Original Medicare. This can amount to substantial savings over buying additional Part D prescription plan plus paying for Original Medicare. This can be beneficial for those who regularly take medications.
- Lower coinsurance. With Original Medicare, you could pay 20 percent coinsurance across the board. With many plans under Medicare Advantage, Washington residents pay less coinsurance and lower copayments, so it costs less to see your doctor.
