Medicare Plans Mini-Course Part 1: What is Medicare Advantage?

Watch Part Two of the Medicare Mini-Course:

Medicare Mini-Course Part Two answers the question, "What is Medicare Advantage?" There is a lot of confusion surrounding the Medicare Advantage program including the false belief that an Advantage Plan is a Medicare supplement. It is not.

Medicare Advantage Plans are offered by private insurance companies under the guidance of The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as another way for you to receive your Medicare benefits.

Enrolling in a Medicare Advantage Plan does not mean that you have left Medicare. You will instead receive all of your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits from the plan. Many Advantage Plans also include Medicare Part D drug coverage. And many plans include extra benefits that are not part of original Medicare such as dental, vision, hearing, transportation and gym memberships.
