Medicare Advantage... What's in it for me?

November 30, 2017

It's open enrolment, and if you've been considering a Medicare Advantage plan, here's a bit of information that just might help you make a smart choice.


What is Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C is the part of Medicare policy that allows private health insurance companies to provide Medicare benefits. These Medicare private health plans, such as HMOs and PPOs, are known as Medicare Advantage Plans. If you want, you can choose to get your Medicare coverage through a Medicare Advantage Plan instead of through original Medicare.  


We recommend that you do because in addition to the all the coverage outlined under original Medicare Part A and B, (with the exception of hospice care), Medicare Advantage plan members are eligible for a whole host of other benefits, typcially at no extra cost, which may include:

  • Dental, 

  • Vision,

  • Hearing,

  • Preventative care, and more!

I want to keep my doctor and stay with South Dade Primary Care - can I do this with Medicare Advantage?

Yes!  By choosing one of the Medicare Advantage plan partners (listed below) that work with South Dade Primary Care, nothing needs to change.  In fact, things could get better for you!  That's why Drs.
