Medicare Advantage Plans in our area are Humana and UnitedHealthcare. You have until March 31, 2019 to drop these plans. When you drop the Medicare Advantage plan you return to Original Medicare. You should purchase a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan and a Medicare Supplement to complete your coverage. In our experienced opinion this is your best coverage option.
The reason a Medicare Advantage plan sounded so good to you is because the cost of the plan can be very low or even $0. This sounds perfect, but it is far from it. We cannot tell you the number of people who come into our office begging to get out of their Medicare Advantage plans because their medical costs are soaring. The problem is that you may not realize your true out-of-pocket costs until you need to use your insurance. Then it may be too late to change. So, before you get sick and find your medical costs soaring, drop your Medicare Advantage plan. The last date to do it is March 31, 2019. Questions? Call us at 540-465-2937.
