Medicare Advantage Information
Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are a private insurance option for those who have Original Medicare. Douglas County has plan_count} MA plans available for 2023 (except Special Needs Plans). Medicare-approved companies must follow the Medicare rules to be eligible for coverage. MA plans (also known as Medicare Part C) may offer additional benefits that are not offered by Original Medicare.
Some Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription medication coverage (i.e. a Part D plan). These plans are also known as Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plans or MAPDs and offer comprehensive coverage to people who wish to lower their healthcare costs.
Medicare Advantage Plan Types
The Medicare Advantage program allows 7 types of private insurance plans. However, all plans are not available in every area. Beneficiaries in Douglas County can choose between 4 of the 7 available plans.
Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) members usually receive services through the plan’s local network of providers. Referrals are typically required to see a specialist and other providers. However, plans allow out-of-network care for emergencies and out-of-area dialysis. Prescription drug coverage is often included in HMO plans, and many plans include some coverage for dental, vison, and hearing.
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) members can usually use in-network and out-of-network providers for care, including hospitalization. However, visits to non-network providers could cost significantly more. PPO plans often include prescription drug coverage and other benefits, and referrals are typically not required for specialist visits.
An HMO-POS (point-of-sale) plan offers the same features as an HMO plan. There is however one major difference. HMO-POS plans allow members to access healthcare providers outside of the plan's network to receive some or all of their services. In most cases, to go out of the plan's network a member will need to get a referral from their physician. Plus, there are separate deductibles for in-network and out-of-network services.
Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) plans are private companies that the Medicare program pays to manage a beneficiary's Medicare benefits. As with all types of Medicare Advantage plans, MSA plans must offer the same basic benefits included in Medicare Part A and Part B. However, benefits may have different rules, restrictions, and costs. Unlike other Medicare Advantage plans, MSAs have a high deductible health plan (HDHP) and a government-funded bank account for paying your medical costs.
Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are highly specialized and you must be qualified to join. For this reason, All Medicare organizes Medicare Advantage Special Needs plans for Douglas County, Nevada residents in their own directory.
Medicare Advantage without Part D
Some beneficiaries may also qualify to join a Medicare Part D plan, also known as a PDP. Nevada Part D plans can be used with Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans that do not include Part D benefits.
