Although all policies are standardized, making them easy to compare, monthly premiums are not. Our goal is to show you all available information about each type of Georgia Medigap plan.
Medicare Supplements vs. Medicare Advantage
Medicare Supplements offer freedom of choice. This freedom comes at a price, and premiums are increasing. That’s why there’s Medicare Advantage. Georgia Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are private health insurance that replace the coverage provided by Original Medicare.
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 Georgia.
