Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people 65 and older. Medicare Advantage, sold by private insurance companies, is a bundled alternative to Medicare that offers the same benefits and usually some extras, such as cost help with dental and vision coverage.

Medicare Advantage plans offer more benefits than Original Medicare plans, and they're often cheaper than paying for Medicare and a Medicare Supplement Insurance plan, or Medigap. However, they offer less flexibility because you’ll need to get care from within the plan’s network of providers. Weigh your options to determine what plan best suits your needs.

How to choose a Medicare Advantage plan

It’s crucial to ask a few questions as you’re shopping for the right plan. Here’s a quick checklist to help you consider your options:

  • How much are the plan’s costs? Do you understand what the plan’s premium, deductibles, copays and/or coinsurance will be? Can you afford them?

  • Is your doctor in-network? If you have a preferred doctor (or doctors) or hospital, make sure they participate in the plan’s network.

  • Are your prescriptions covered? If you’re on medication, understand how the plan covers it. What tier are your prescription drugs on, and are there any coverage rules that apply to them?

  • Is there dental coverage? Does the plan offer routine coverage for vision, dental and hearing needs?

  • Are there extras? Does the plan offer any additional perks, such as fitness memberships, transportation benefits or meal delivery?

You can use Medicare’s plan finding tool to compare plans in your area.
