Medicare Advantage (MA) is now an insurance option for people who are on Medicare and diagnosed with end stage renal disease (ESRD). Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Part C, is an all-in-one health insurance plan that combines benefits from other Medicare plans into 1 convenient plan.

5 reasons to consider Medicare Advantage

  • It combines benefits of Medicare Parts A+B—and often Part D
  • Plans may cost you less—some have $0 premiums
  • Some plans offer dental, vision, hearing—and other benefits
  • You may be able to save on prescription costs—including insulin
  • Annual out-of-pocket costs are capped—to help limit spending
  • You’ll have just 1 plan to manage—and 1 insurance card

Medicare Advantage plans may offer you better coverage, lower premium costs, and the convenience of an all-in-one plan. However, there are many costs to consider when figuring out which health plan is best for your needs and it’s important to make sure you’re choosing your best coverage. Contact your insurance coordinator, visit Medicare.gov, or talk to an independent licensed insurance agent for more information on Medicare Advantage.
Learn more of what CMS is saying about Medicare Advantage here and for more details on the cost savings and plans offered, read a recent CMS press release on Medicare Advantage and Open Enrollment.

Your current plan may be your best option—or you may find there’s another option that provides better coverage. Before you make a change, contact your insurance coordinator to help you compare your options and see the big picture before you make a decision.

If you already have Medicare and you’re diagnosed with end stage renal disease (ESRD), you are eligible for Medicare Advantage. Talk to your insurance coordinator or contact an independent licensed insurance agent for more information.
CMS announced you may be able to save on prescription costs with Medicare Advantage. Be sure to ask about insulin savings through the Part D Senior Savings Model. In 2021, more than 1,600 prescription insurance plans across the country will cover a broad set of insulins with out-of-pocket cost limited to $35 per month. Learn more at Medicare.gov or talk to an independent licensed insurance agent.
With a Medicare Advantage plan that includes prescription coverage, all of your coverage is in a single plan. You are considered fully insured—you will not need to purchase a separate prescription drug plan or Medicare Supplement plan. Because you are getting all your coverage benefits in 1 plan instead of several, you will have only 1 monthly premium and 1 insurance card.
