Medicare Advantage Plan Summary & Benefits

Humana Gold Choice H8145-126, TX Medicare Advantage PlanHumana Gold Choice H8145-126 (H8145-126), Private Fee-for-Service Advantage Plan, Tyler County, TX

Humana Gold Choice H8145-126 is a Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) healthcare plan for seniors and other beneficiaries living in Tyler County, TX. With a Medicare Advantage PFFS plan you can see almost any doctor you choose, as long as the provider accepts the plan's Terms and Conditions of Payment. Many Private Fee-for-Service plans combine all the benefits of Original Medicare, prescription drug coverage and many extras into one simple, easy-to-use plan. If that's what you want, be sure to read all of the details.

The Humana Gold Choice H8145-126 Private Fee-for-Service plan works differently than a Medicare Supplement plan. With a Medicare Advantage PFFS plan your doctor or hospital can continue to treat you if it agrees to accept the terms and conditions of payment. For the same reason, they can choose not to treat you (with the exception of emergencies).
