Medicare Advantage

Under­stand how Medicare Advan­tage plans can work for you.

At DuPage Med­ical Group, we believe the key to being healthy is stay­ing healthy. That is why we encour­age our senior patients to con­sid­er whether a Medicare Advan­tage plan may be right for you. Medicare Advan­tage plans allow you and your provider to work togeth­er to keep you healthy.

What is Medicare Advantage?

A Medicare Advan­tage Plan is anoth­er way to get your Medicare cov­er­age. Medicare Advan­tage Plans, some­times called Part C” or MA Plans”, are offered by Medicare-approved pri­vate com­pa­nies that must fol­low rules set by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advan­tage Plan, you’ll still have Medicare but you’ll get most of your Medicare Part A (Hos­pi­tal Insur­ance) and Medicare Part B (Med­ical Insur­ance) cov­er­age from the Medicare Advan­tage Plan, not Orig­i­nal Medicare.

Most plans include Medicare pre­scrip­tion drug cov­er­age (Part D).

Most Medicare Advan­tage Plans offer cov­er­age for things that aren’t cov­ered by Orig­i­nal Medicare, like vision, hear­ing, den­tal and well­ness pro­grams (like gym memberships).

Plans can also include a broad­er range of extra ben­e­fits” than they have in the past, includ­ing ser­vices like trans­porta­tion to doc­tor vis­its, over-the-counter drugs, adult day-care ser­vices and oth­er health-relat­ed ser­vices that pro­mote your health and wellness.
