Do you keep hearing about other options available to you but you have no way to learn about them? You try to call an insurance company or a broker but they are either rushing you, not being helpful, or pushing you to enroll into a plan you know nothing about. You try searching the internet only to find twenty different articles on the same topic but they all say completely different things. You try going through the 64 pieces of mail that you have received regarding Medicare Plans but are overwhelmed with all of the different information. At this point, you are ready to give up and stick with what you have, even though your costs are increasing.
You don’t have to feel this way anymore
Here at the AMAC Medicare Department, it is our goal to help our members to the best of our ability. Medicare can be very confusing to some beneficiaries, especially those who are new to Medicare. Our agents hear beneficiaries asking about the “Other Medicare Plans” on a daily basis. In some cases the “Other Plan” will be a Medicare Supplement (aka Medigap), and in other cases the “Other Plan” will be a Medicare Advantage Plan. Many times beneficiaries confuse the two calling their current plan a Medicare Supplement Plan when they are actually enrolled into a Medicare Advantage Plan. AMAC’s licensed and certified Insurance Agents are here to help sort all of this out with you. Our agents will take all of the time you need to make sure you fully understand the plan you are considering.
Three years ago we published an article called Medicare 101 which had a chart that clearly defined the differences between Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage Plans. This chart was originally designed to help our Agents properly explain the differences between the two types of plans to our members. They found it so useful that our agents started sending this chart to our members who prefer to see things in writing. This chart helped members better understand the plan they were currently in, or were looking to change to.
The most important thing to remember is that a Medicare Supplement is NOT a Medicare Advantage Plan. They work very differently from each other and it is very important to know the differences when trying to choose the plan that most suits your needs.
Since this chart has been such a powerful tool for both our agents and our members, we would like to share it with you again.
Keep in Mind – The Annual Enrollment Period is Here!
The AEP started on October 15th and runs through December 7th. This is the one time a year when most beneficiaries can make a change.
