Questions to consider: 

As you evaluate your Medicare Advantage plan options, be sure to ask the following questions: 

  • Are the doctors and hospitals that I use and trust available with the health plan?
  • What will the total cost of each Medicare plan be when I factor in my plan premiums, copays, and deductibles?
  • Will my prescriptions be covered and what will my cost share be?
  • Will my prescription costs hit the Medicare Part D coverage gap?
  • Do I qualify for programs that provide additional financial assistance, such as EPIC or the low-income subsidy?
  • Will my coverage extend out-of-network if I travel or spend time outside the local area?

We can help. Talk to a local representative.  

We're here to answer your questions. Call, email, or meet one-on-one with an experienced Medicare representative.
