Medicare Advantage Insurance Plans

Original Medicare (Parts A and B) doesn’t cover everything; you generally have to pay your deductible, 20% of your Part B medical bills and all of your prescription drug cost. Medicare Advantage insurance is designed to replace Original Medicare and be the only health care plan you need. You get your coverage for a wide array of health care services – including doctor visits, hospital care and prescription drug coverage – all in one plan.

Our Medicare Advantage insurance plans are offered in 76 Nebraska counties (for a full list of counties please refer to the Plan Benefits page).

Medicare Parts

Medicare Advantage Infographic

Part A: Hospital

Medicare Part A is Hospital insurance and helps cover cost if you are staying in a hospital, skilled nursing facility or hospice care.

Part B: Medical

Medicare Part B is Medical insurance and helps cover cost for doctor services, outpatient care, durable medical equipment and other medical services. If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan you must continue to pay your Part B premium.

Part C: Medicare Advantage

Part C also known as Medicare Advantage. You still enroll in Part A and Part B, but you receive all your benefits through one plan instead of through Original Medicare. Plus, these plans often have additional benefits that Original Medicare does not offer.

Part D: Prescriptions

Medicare Part D is Prescription Drug coverage and helps cover the cost of many outpatient prescription drugs. If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan drug coverage is usually included, otherwise it is offered through insurance companies as a separate plan.
