Medicare Advantage has played a more significant presence in the Medicare program over the last decade. Over 60 million individuals receive health coverage through Medicare, about one-third of which chose to receive Medicare Advantage benefits rather than original Medicare. Here's what to expect if you're thinking about getting Medicare Advantage plans for 2021.
2021 Medicare Advantage Plan Offerings
Both hospital and medical insurance coverage and extra coverage are provided through Medicare Advantage plans. Depending on the type of plan you chose, the following will apply to you:
What You Need to Know
Currently, Medicare Advantage has its open enrollment period that runs annually from January 1 through March 31. If you're new to Medicare Benefit, this provides you with a fair chance to pursue a plan, see if you like it, and make improvements early in 2021, rather than being stuck with that plan for the whole year.
Medicare Advantage is not always a cost-effective alternative to the original Medicare. Hospitalization can incur additional expenses. At least 50 percent of Medicare Advantage recipients will be on the hook for higher out-of-pocket costs than those on original Medicare for a hospital stay lasting just five days or longer.
It's essential to know what type of medical insurance plan fits your fitness and lifestyle. There are annual changes in the plans. That's why it's also necessary to stay updated with your insurance plans.
