You have to live in a Medicare Advantage plan’s service area to enroll in their plan. You will also have to go to doctors, facilities and suppliers that are in the plan’s network – unless you have an emergency.
Medicare Advantage plans work to coordinate your care. That means your doctors and your health plan work together to get you the care that you need. For that reason, Medicare Advantage plans will encourage you to select a primary care physician who is responsible for your care. The plans may also require referrals to see a specialist.
If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you will pay your Medicare Part A premium if you have one, your Medicare Part B premium and a Medicare Advantage plan premium. Some Medicare Advantage plans offer a $0 premium.
You will also be responsible for paying for any deductibles, copayments or coinsurance.
