Medicare Advantage Plans in Altoona

Are you looking for information on Medicare Advantage plans?

Sometimes it can be hard to find valuable, honest information about health insurance policies online. There are so many websites that contain false information, and there are so many people trying to pressure you into purchasing one insurance plan or another.

One of the benefits of working with an insurance agency is that they are not allowed to endorse any particular plan. All an agency like Cross Insurance Agency can do is get an understanding of your situation and recommend the most economical, sensible, and affordable plan for your life.

If you have questions for us, we are confident we can help you. We have been Altoona’s most-trusted insurance agency since we opened our doors in 1981. Our goal is, was, and always will be, to bring clarity to the complicated world of Medicare.

If you are looking for information on the Medicare Advantage plan, you’ve come to the right place.

Who is Eligible for a Medicare Advantage Plan?

Medicare Advantage plans are provided by private companies and not by the federal government, unlike Traditional Medicare. Despite the fact that the MA plan is offered through a private company it is still Medicare-approved, and it adheres to the guidelines of Traditional Medicare plans.

To be eligible for a Medicare Advantage plan you must also be enrolled in Medicare Parts A, and B. Most people over the age of 65 are eligible for Traditional Medicare, at which point they will also be eligible for a Medicare Advantage plan.

What Does a Medicare Advantage Plan Cover?

The Medicare Advantage Plan typically covers all the services that the Traditional Medicare plan covers (Parts A and B), plus Part D.

Part A covers hospital care, nursing facility care, home health care

Part B covers doctor visits, outpatient procedures, x-rays, ambulance services, and so on

Part D covers prescription drug coverage

Medicare Advantage plans can also potentially cover costs of health club memberships, vision care, and preventive dental care.

Overseas Travel Coverage With Medicare Advantage Plan

Many people in Altoona ask Cross Insurance Agency if the Medicare Advantage plan is worth the paperwork. They also ask if Medicare Advantage provides overseas travel coverage. It goes without saying that if you are traveling, you want to be protected from the high costs of sudden injuries in foreign countries. One of the downsides of Traditional Medicare coverage is that it only has limited coverage for travelers. So what about the MA plan? That must be one of its perks, right?

The short answer is: Yes. However, no two plans are the same. Depending on your coverage, there still may be limitations to your overseas coverage.

We suggest going over your Medicare Advantage plan with your insurance agent to ensure there are no lingering questions about the complexities of your plan.

Having an insurance agent like one of the agents at Cross Insurance Agency will ensure that no questions will go unanswered. Our service is always friendly and hospital. You can count on us to always advocate for your well-being.
