Medicare Advantage plans, also called ‘Part C’ or ‘MA Plans,’ were established in 2003 giving senior clients an alternative option to Original Medicare. These plans are offered by private companies, approved by Medicare, that will pay for health care costs based on a monthly fee per enrollee rather than billing for each fee for a Medicare service that is provided to the client (Original Medicare). When a client joins a Medicare Advantage plan, they still have Medicare and must pay their Part B premiums, but they will not have original Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance).
Listed below are some of the Medicare Advantage carriers we represent:
