Learn About Your Medicare Options

Choos­ing the right Medicare plan can feel over­whelm­ing. DuPage Med­ical Group wants you to under­stand your cov­er­age options and how they affect your health. This video sim­pli­fies your Medicare options, so you can feel con­fi­dent in mak­ing an informed deci­sion. If you have ques­tions con­cern­ing Medicare, we encour­age patients to sched­ule an annu­al ben­e­fit review with a licensed rep­re­sen­ta­tive. If you do not cur­rent­ly work with a local insur­ance agent, please call the Integri­ty Medicare Helpline at 1−855−205−2037 to sched­ule an appoint­ment with a licensed advisor.

In eval­u­at­ing a Medicare plan, con­sid­er the following:

  • How impor­tant is it to con­tin­ue see­ing my pri­ma­ry care physician?
  • Are my pre­scrip­tions covered?
  • Is my pre­ferred phar­ma­cy in-network?
  • Can I get the care I want for a cost I can afford?
  • Does this plan include the ben­e­fits that are most impor­tant to me?

    Our New, Com­pre­hen­sive Pri­ma­ry Care Ini­tia­tive for Medicare Advan­tage Patients

    At DuPage Med­ical Group our physi­cians and asso­ciates are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing our patients with the high­est qual­i­ty health care. We con­tin­u­ous­ly seek new ways in which we can enhance patient care and their over­all patient expe­ri­ence. DuPage Med­ical Group is excit­ed to announce our new – Com­pre­hen­sive Pri­ma­ry Care Ini­tia­tive for Medicare Advan­tage patients.

    This Ini­tia­tive will allow a select num­ber of DMG Pri­ma­ry Care Physi­cians (list­ed below) to tran­si­tion their Medicare (Age 65+) prac­tices to the more com­pre­hen­sive patient and well­ness focused care mod­els pro­mot­ed by cer­tain Medicare Advan­tage plans. Effec­tive Jan­u­ary 1, 2021, and due to the addi­tion­al demands on their time that this Ini­tia­tive will require, those select Physi­cians will only con­tin­ue to serve as a pri­ma­ry care physi­cian to those Medicare-eli­gi­ble patients which are enrolled in the Medicare Advan­tage plans they par­tic­i­pate in. They will no longer con­tin­ue see­ing pri­ma­ry care patients with tra­di­tion­al Medicare insurance. 

    Medicare Advan­tage plans typ­i­cal­ly pro­vide addi­tion­al ben­e­fits not avail­able under tra­di­tion­al Medicare. These plans may also pro­vide ben­e­fits that address patients’ social and envi­ron­men­tal needs as well. Patients impact­ed by this change should have received a let­ter from their pri­ma­ry care physi­cian advis­ing of this change and spec­i­fy­ing the Medicare Advan­tage plans they par­tic­i­pate in. More infor­ma­tion as to par­tic­u­lar plan ben­e­fits may be obtained by con­tact­ing a licensed and inde­pen­dent insur­ance agent, if you do not have an agent we have part­nered with agents who can help. They can be reached at 855−429−1086 for a no oblig­a­tion Medicare ben­e­fit plan review. Their goal is to help our patients find the best plan that fits their indi­vid­ual health­care needs.

    All physi­cians will con­tin­ue to accept patients with Com­mer­cial insur­ance plans that are cur­rent­ly accept­ed by DMG. Please refer to the Insur­ance infor­ma­tion page in the Resources sec­tion of our site for a list of DMG accept­ed Insur­ance Plans.
