Are you considering a Medicare advantageal policy? You may want more information about Medicare advantageal insurance. Make sure you know what different policies you are considering in order to find the policy that best suits your needs.

What is a Medicare advantageal policy?

Let’s start with some background on Medicare advantageal policy (also known as Medigap).

Private insurance companies are offering advantageal Medicare policies to pay Medicare costs. Several Medicare advantageal policies pay different amounts of these costs, such as co pays, co insurance, and deductibles, and close other “gaps” in Medicare coverage.

In 47 states, Medicare advantageal policies are standardized in 10 different benefit sets, labeled alphabetically, so you can easily compare policies sold by different insurance companies. For example, the Medicare Advantageal Policy A (should not be mistaken for Medicare Part A) will provide the same benefits no matter where you purchase this policy (however, some insurance companies may offer additional benefits).

Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin have other standardized Medicare advantageal policies than the 10 types listed in the US. Bear in mind that all insurance companies do not necessarily offer all types of Medicare advantageal policies.

When you buy a Medicare advantageal policy, you generally pay an insurance premium to the insurance company. As long as you continue to pay your premium and have Medicare Part A and B, your Medicare advantageal policy will usually be renewed automatically each year, although the amount of the premium may change.

You have union or employer coverage that already covers most of the medical costs that Medicare Part A and B do not pay for.  You have a Medicare Advantage policy. Medicare advantageal policies and Medicare Advantage policies are not designed to work together.
