What Services are Covered?
With all types of Medicare Advantage plans, you will always be covered for emergency and urgent care. Medicare Advantage plans have to cover all of the services that Original Medicare will cover except hospice care and care in qualifying clinical research studies.
Original Medicare covers hospice care and some costs for clinical research studies, even if you’re covered by a Medicare Advantage plan.
Keep in mind that Medicare Advantage plans may offer extra coverage. That can include coverage like vision, hearing, dental, and other health and wellness programs. Majority of Medicare Advantage plans include Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D).
In addition to your Part B premium, you might also have to pay a monthly premium for the Medicare Advantage plan.
