Medicare Supplements vs. Medicare Advantage
If you can’t afford a Medicare Supplement there is another option. It’s called Medicare Advantage. Wyoming Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are private health insurance that replace the coverage provided by Original Medicare.
The advantage of these plans is cost and additional benefits. Most MA plans offer Medicare Part D coverage for your prescriptions, and some offer dental, vision and hearing benefits. The disadvantage is choice, because you may be restricted to using healthcare providers in a plan’s network.
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 Wyoming.
