Choosing a Medicare Plan Type

When you're searching for supplemental Medicare insurance, there are some important considerations to keep at the forefront of your mind. To begin with, there are two major types of Medicare plans — Medicare Supplement (Medigap) and Medicare Advantage (Part C) — and understanding the difference between them is essential. While they sound similar, they actually work quite differently andwhich type is right for you depends on some variables, including:

  • What types of physicians participate in either plan

  • Whether your preferred hospital accepts the insurance

  • How often you travel

  • Your risk tolerance

  • Your own peace of mind

Other common plans include Part A Hospital Insurance and Part B for medically necessary and preventative services.

Choosing a Medicare Supplement (Medigap)

If you've determined that Medigap would offer you the coverage you're looking for, our Medicare sharks can search and find a plan in your region. We're a large broker so we can invest in quoting software to give us all available prices in every state. Medicare Supplement premiums vary from person to person depending on various factors. Variations in Medicare Supplement premiums depend on certain factors including age, gender, and tobacco usage, and household discounts are available for those who qualify. Specific state rules can affect premiums as well.

Choosing a Medicare Advantage Plan

There are a variety of Medicare Advantage plans available, and determining which one is right for you depends on your preferences and needs. Some individuals prefer a Medicare HMO plan for the low premiums, while others opt for a Medicare PPO plan for its flexibility and out-of-network benefits. Medicare Sharks is familiar with every type of Advantage plan and can help you make the best choice.
