Consumer Guide: Medicare Supplement & Medicare Advantage Insurance
Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage Insurance
If you are nearing 65 or already enrolled in Medicare, it is important to know that Original Medicare alone doesn’t cover all medical expenses. This is where Medicare supplement insurance or Medicare Advantage plans come in. However, with so many options available, finding the right plan can be overwhelming. This is where a knowledgeable insurance agent can help. A good agent will help you understand your options, including the differences between Medicare supplement and Medicare Advantage plans, as well as help you find a plan that fits your specific needs and budget. In this consumer guide, we will provide you with tips on how to choose the right agent to help you navigate the complex world of Medicare insurance.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has strict rules regarding the sales and marketing of Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans. Individual states also have insurance regulations in place. The following tips are not intended to replace or interfere with existing CMS or individual state rules and regulations already in place. Be sure to visit the official US Government website for Medicare at www.medicare.gov and your state’s insurance commissioner for a complete listing of current rules and regulations.
