Three basic costs involved for you to have and use Medicare Advantage

Get the best price you can

  • Premiums: Premium is the amount you pay on a monthly basis simply to have Medicare Advantage available to you, regardless of whether you use it or not. Unlike basic Medicare, Med Advantage is issued by private insurance companies and the premiums will vary company to company. In some cases, no premium is charged the consumer.

  • Deductibles: Deductibles are basically a dollar threshold amount that you must pay before your coverage kicks in. If the medical service you seek costs less than your deductible, your insurance won’t kick in until the amount exceeds your deductible.
  • Co-insurance: Co-insurance is basically your share of approved Medicare costs after you pay your deductible. As an example: for Medicare Part B outpatient coverage, you pay 20% of the Medicare approved costs, after you pay your deductible. A Medicare Advantage plan can help offset those coinsurance costs.
