What You Must Know about Medicare Supplements in Ohio
If this is your first time considering a Medicare Supplement in Ohio, and you’re not exact sure which plan to choose, read our Medicare Supplement Plan information page. Although all policies are standardized, making them easy to compare, monthly premiums are not. Our goal is to give you a complete run down on all Ohio 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. When you enroll in a Ohio Medicare Advantage (MA) plan your healthcare is covered through private insurance.
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 Ohio.
Ohio Medicare Part D Plans (Rx)
While you’re comparing Ohio 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 Ohio.
