  1. Here in Palm Beach County Florida the Advantage plans are numerous and competitive and the largest plans have extensive Doctor participation, particularly Humana. The supplement plans become unaffordable as you age, once you are in your upper 70’s or 80 years old or more, you can be paying $500 a month, plus drug plan etc. I see most folks cannot maintain them as they get old and really need them. Nightmare!

  2. We have been on the Humana Advantage plan for years and are very happy with it. Co pays for office visits are low and the mail order prescription is very convenient and reasonable priced plus you receive a monthly allowance to purchase over the counter vitamins and such from a Humana catalog.
    Never had a problem finding a specialist but then we do live in a big city.

  3. My husband and I have Medicare and Medicaid. Medicaid pays our Medicare Part B premium so that amount is not deducted from our monthly Social Security Disability check. This is the only amount which Medicaid pays. We are responsible to pay our Part B deductible and 20% of the allowable amount of our doctor’s bills and Medicare pays the 80% of the allowable amount, after our deductible is met. We also have a stand-alone PDP (Part D) with Humana with extra help. We have no deductible or premiums to pay with Part D. These plans are working well for us and so far we have not had any major health issues that will cause us any financial burdens to us.

    My question is this: Do we still need to have Medigap/supplement insurance with our Part A, Part B, and Part D Medicare? Does Medicaid serve as Medigap insurance? I do realize that Medicare Part A & B is our primary health insurance. We are on a fixed income with Social Security Disability being our only source of income.

  4. I have been disabled and have had Medicare Advantage since about 1999. I have never paid Part B or a co-pay or paid for medication. I have great caring insurance care, doctors and hospitals. They include $110.00 over the counter drugs as well as $75.00 monthly food card, dental and vision. They send a Lift or Uber to my door for transportation, call for a ride and wait 3 minutes, not a bus with other people. What’s to complain about?

  5. Something to be aware of – if it matters to you – is that many Advantage Plans have now been cited for overcharging Medicare for services.

  6. To me the biggest factor is original Medicare allows me to go to any doctor, specialist or hospital in my area or anywhere in the country and the advantage plans lock me into a medical group and their doctors. That alone is worth a few extra bucks in the best years for me
