Medicare Drug Coverage: Know Your Options

You can achieve peace of your mind and remain healthy by choosing a suitable health plan that meets your needs. It would be perfect if you must choose between original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans. There are two types of Medicare coverage: Part A and B. Specifically, part A deals with hospital coverage that involves hospital stays, care in a nursing facility, hospital care, and home healthcare services. Moreover, it is free for most people. On the other hand, part B includes doctor’s services, outpatient care, and preventive services, which require a monthly fee. However, there are some benefits that parts A and B don’t cover, but you have several options to support your Medicare. Let’s dive into how you can incorporate Medicare drug coverage. 

Incorporating Medicare Drug Coverage

You may have to consider joining a Medicare drug plan if you are taking prescription drugs. These plans offer a standard level of Medicare coverage, and they can vary according to the drugs they cover. Therefore, you should consider your priorities to get a Medicare plan that suits you the right. Moreover, this plan charges a monthly premium.

Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)

Private insurance companies usually offer these services that help pay off some costs that parts A and B don’t cover. However, the price varies according to the type of policies and companies. However, if you already have an advantage plan, it is illegal to have a Medigap policy. Finally, a 6-month Medigap open enrolment period is the right time to purchase this policy. 

Medicare Advantage Plan

Also known as part C plan, it is an alternative to original Medicare. These plans include all the services that parts A, B, and D offer. Moreover, it also offers some additional benefits like vision and dental coverage. However, if you are seeing doctors or providers outside your plan’s provider network, you may have to pay some or all of your costs in addition to some monthly premiums.
