The Medicare Advantage plan is a program available through the Affordable Care Act that gives those seeking medical coverage a private option instead of using traditional medicare. The care that each version of Medicare covers is divided up into portions. Traditional Medicare covers Part and Part B. Medicare Advantage covers other things that are covered under Part A and Part B doesn’t cover like vision dental. The Advantage plan can also cover other wellness and therapy programs. It may also cover some prescription medicines that Medicare doesn’t cover.
It is important to note that Medicare Advantage (MA) is also required to cover all the things that are covered in parts A and B if Medicare coverage. While it was an option for coverage before Obamacare was enacted, the number of people are enrolled in Medicare C coverage has increased dramatically since it was passed. There are reportedly 5.6 million more people enrolled in MA coverage than there was before the Affordable Care Act. This is 31% of the total number of people that are enrolled in Medicare as a whole. The number of people enrolled in the Medicare Advantage plan has increased in recent years. Those that have the plan should be aware of some up and coming changes to the program, though.
