What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?

A Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) is another Medicare health insurance plan choice

you have as part of Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,”

are offered by private companies approved by Medicare.

decisions.  These decisions have no regulation and have been known to be made with profit in mind.
