2023 Wellcare No Premium Open (PPO)

Wellcare Wellcare No Premium Open (PPO) has a monthly premium of $0 and has an in-network maximum out-of-pocket limit of $5,500 (MOOP).

Wellcare works with Medicare to provide significant coverage beyond Part A and Part B benefits. If you decide to sign up for Wellcare No Premium Open (PPO) you still retain Original Medicare.

Original Medicare still provides you with hospice care if you sign up for Medicare Advantage in Alabama.
