1. Reasons to Enroll in Medicare Advantage Plans
Original Medicare provides for some basic health needs such as inpatient hospital or skilled nursing facility stays. However, there are many medical needs that Original Medicare does not provide for. Examples of these include dental visits, eye exams for glasses, acupuncture, and clinic visits for hearing aids. Individuals wishing for greater healthcare coverage can seek out Medicare Advantage Plans that provide many of these services. Prescription drug coverage, fitness programs, and maximum out-of-pocket limits are other possible advantages of investing in a supplemental Medicare Advantage Plan.
