I have a Medicare Advantage plan, now what? If you're enrolled in Medicare, you have the option to receive your benefits through a Medicare Advantage plan. Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private insurance companies and they must provide at least the same level of coverage as Original Medicare. Some Medicare Advantage plans may also offer additional benefits, like routine vision or dental coverage. There are different types of Medicare Advantage plans, including Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs), Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plans, Special Needs Plans (SNPs), and HMO Point-of-Service (HMOPOS) plans. You'll need to choose a plan that meets your needs and budget. Some of the benefits of enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan include having one plan that covers both your medical and prescription drug needs, receiving extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn't cover, and having the stability of knowing your coverage can't be canceled as long as you pay your premiums.
