- Plan Options
The federal Medicare system gives you only two Medicare regulated options to choose from once you qualify and enroll in Original Medicare.
OPTION 1: Keep Original Medicare and add a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan and a separate Medicare Part D Plan (Stand Alone Prescription Drug Plan)
OPTION 2: Enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C Plans) - these plans include Medicare Parts A&B and can add additional benefits such as Prescription (Part D), Dental, Vision, etc.
I cover both of these options with Medicare health insurance plans through Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Rhode Island, United Healthcare, and Aetna. Any information that you see in advertisements or receive in the mail regarding Medicare health plans from BCBSRI, UH, or Aetna falls into one of the two options above - ALL OF WHICH I PROVIDE.
