Compare Medicare Advantage & Supplemental Plans

Medicare supplement plans offer benefits in addition to the benefits offered by Medicare Parts A and B, and they are offered by private insurance companies. There are several different types of Medicare supplement plans available, including Plan A, Plan C, Plan F, Plan M and Plan N. Medicare supplement plans and Medicare Advantage plans are not complementary, so it is important to understand which type of policy makes the most sense for you. Our licensed sales agents are standing by to walk you through a comparison of the costs and benefits of each type of plan, and to help you choose a Medicare supplement plan that best meets your needs.

Medicare Information and Plan Comparisons

While health care was not central to the 2016 Presidential campaign, the election’s outcome will be a major determining factor in the country’s future health care policy. A number of issues have garnered media attention, including the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), rising prescription drug costs, and the opioid epidemic.

Turning Medicare Into a Premium Support System: Frequently Asked Questions

An important issue for plans (and consumers) is how the Medicare marketplace would be governed.  In many proposals for a premium support system, it is unclear how the marketplace would be regulated or even which federal agency would regulate it.  Many premium support proposals would maintain an annual open enrollment period, guaranteed issue requirements, and some form of risk adjustment.  However, other factors that affect plans would change or are not specified.  For example, many proposals do not specify whether premiums would be community rated or age-rated, or whether plans would be required to offer Medicare benefits.  Many proposals would also “grandfather” current beneficiaries (not requiring them to enroll in the premium support system) which would create two separate systems – one for beneficiaries who are “grandfathered” and a separate system for new enrollees aging onto the program – and insurers could be required to maintain plans that operate under two different sets of rules and payments.
