5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Medicare Plan
Does this plan meet my health care needs? Does it fit my budget? Quartz Medicare Advantage (HMO) lists the top five things to think about when picking a Medicare Advantage plan.
With so many Medicare Advantage plan options out there, it can be hard to choose the right one. Quartz Medicare Advantage’s local experts have been helping people find Medicare coverage for 20 years and can put that knowledge and experience into helping you find the Medicare Advantage plan that’s right for you.
1. Does this plan meet my health care needs?
You should consider how well your Medicare plan meets your lifestyle and health goals. Medicare Advantage plans can offer you more than Original Medicare. From benefits like vision, hearing, and dental coverage to extra benefits such as wellness programs, virtual doctor visits, and meal delivery after hospital stays, Quartz Medicare Advantage plans offer you real value for your health insurance dollar.
2. What doctors and specialists can I see?
Switching doctors can be a hassle. If you’ve been with the same doctor for years, you may want to choose a plan that allows you to stay with that doctor. On the other hand, you may want to visit a new doctor and have a larger provider network to choose from. Quartz Medicare Advantage offers a one-provider network so that all participating providers within the Gundersen Health System, UW Health, and SwedishAmerican service areas are covered.
3. Does this plan fit my budget?
Cost can play a large role in choosing a Medicare Advantage plan. You may be concerned about how much you’ll pay in monthly premiums or what your annual out-of-pocket costs will look like. Some Quartz Medicare Advantage plans are available for only $0/month. Other Quartz Medicare Advantage plans offer convenient payment options with coupon books, automatic withdrawal from your bank account, or automatic withholding from your Social Security check.
4. Can I get Medicare Part D benefits too?
If you take medications regularly, you’ll want those covered. One of the benefits of signing up for a Medicare Advantage plan is that you can get prescription drug coverage. Quartz Medicare Advantage offers plan options with or without Part D prescription drug coverage to help simplify your benefits.
5. What if I need help reviewing plan options?
