2023 AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS)

AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS) H1944-014 is a 2023 Medicare Advantage Plan or Part-C by UnitedHealthcare available to residents in Rhode Island. This plan includes additional prescription drug (Part-D) coverage. UnitedHealthcare AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS) has a monthly premium of $19.00 and has an in-network maximum out-of-pocket limit of $4,500 (MOOP). This means that if you get sick or need a high-cost procedure the co-pays are capped once you pay $4,500 out-of-pocket. This can be an extremely nice safety net.

UnitedHealthcare works with Medicare to provide significant coverage beyond Part A and Part B benefits. If you decide to sign up for AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS) you still retain Original Medicare. But you will get additional Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from UnitedHealthcare and not Original Medicare. With 2023 Medicare Advantage Plan you are always covered for urgently needed and emergency care. Plus, you receive all the benefits of Original Medicare from UnitedHealthcare except hospice care. Original Medicare still provides you with hospice care if you sign up for Medicare Advantage in Rhode Island.

What type of plan is AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS)

AARP Medicare Advantage (HMO-POS) is a Local HMO. With a health maintenance organization (HMO) you will be required to receive most of your health care from an in-network provider. Health maintenance organizations require that you select a primary care physician (PCP). Your primary care physician will serve as your personal doctor to provide all of your basic healthcare services. If you require specialized care or a physician specialist, your primary care physician will make the arrangements and inform you where you can go in the network. You will need your primary care physician approval, called a referral. Services received from an out-of-network provider are not typically covered.

With a HMO-POS point-of-service you have the option to go out-of-network or see a specialist without a referral. But, you may pay more for out-of-network care you receive than from an in-network provider.
