What You Must Know about Medicare Supplements in Nebraska
If you’re not familiar with Nebraska Medicare Supplement insurance, and how it protects you from massive doctor and hospital bills, read our Medicare Supplement information page. It’s important to know that all lettered plans are standardized, but the monthly premiums are not. Our goal is to give you a complete run down on all Nebraska carriers, policies and benefits.
Medicare Supplements vs. Medicare Advantage
Comprehensive Medicare Supplements are expensive and premiums are going up. If you can afford a supplement it’s the best choice. If not, there’s Medicare Advantage. A Nebraska Medicare Advantage (MA) plan protects you from big healthcare bills and may provide additional options that Original Medicare does not.
As with most other financial decisions, there are trade-offs. Most importantly your choice in healthcare providers, which most Medicare Advantage plans restrict to their network of providers. That said, the big advantages are additional benefits, like prescriptions, dental, hearing, and vision that are not covered by Original Medicare.
The important thing to know about every Medicare Advantage plan is that they limit your Maximum Out-of-Pocket (MOOP) expense to a maximum of $6,700 per year. That makes them worth comparing to Medicare Supplements. We have the complete catalog of 2018 Medicare Advantage Plans available in Nebraska.
Nebraska Medicare Part D Plans (Rx)
While you’re comparing Nebraska Medicare Supplements, it’s a good idea to shop for a Medicare Part D Plan (PDP), too. Medicare does not cover prescriptions, nor do Medigap plans. We make shopping easy with our complete catalog of 2018 Medicare Part D Plans in Nebraska.
