Advantage Network and Advantage Preferred by Advantage Health

Advantage Health Solutions is a locally owned company serving several counties in Indiana.  They offer group insurance as well as Medicare insurance.  They offer four Medicare Advantage Plans that are HMO network based that cover both Medical and prescription drugs, and one PPO plan that does not cover prescription drugs.  The four plans are Advantage network (Community Health), Advantage Network (St Frances Health), Advantage Network (Wishard Health), and Wishard Complete Care Basic.  These plans are available in Indiana to residence of the following counties:  Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Marion, and Morgan.  The PPO with no drug coverage is called Advantage Preferred, and is offered in the same counties as the other PPOs.  Let’s look at each one in more detail in order to see which one makes the most sense for you!
