Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with Medigap: Massachusetts Full Coverage Choices
A Medicare Advantage plan is one option for full coverage health insurance, but you have a second option that works with your Original Medicare. You can keep your Part A and Part B coverage and supplement it with a Medigap policy and a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. If you’re not familiar with Medigap policies in Massachusetts, and how they pay your deductibles, co-insurances and co-pays, read our Medicare Supplement page. All Medigap plans available in Massachusetts are standardized. That means a Plan F, as an example, has the same benefits from every company that sells it. The only difference is the monthly premium
Massachusetts Medicare Advantage Enrollment Options
In general, there are two times that you can enroll in a Massachusetts Medicare Advantage plan that’s available in your county. The first time you can enroll is during your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). For most people, your IEP happens when you turn 65. After that, you enroll in an MA plan during open enrollment, called the Annual Election Period (AEP). During AEP, which starts every year on October 1st and ends on December 7th, you can enroll, dis-enroll or change plans.
Are you ready to enroll, but you’re not quite sure how? No problem, it’s easy! Most Massachusetts seniors use an independent Medicare insurance agent to walk them through the whole process. Your agent is well versed in all of the plans available in your county, and they will help you compare plan features without trying to sell you on one plan or another. In fact, by law agents are required to follow strict selling and marketing guidelines. It’s all for your protection. If you’d rather not use a local agent, you can go directly to Medicare.gov.

Massachusetts Medicare Advantage Plans vs. Obamacare
Do you have questions about how Obamacare affects MA plans in 2014? Trust me, you’re not alone. Quite a few Massachusetts seniors are confused. What you really need to know is that the new healthcare law does not affect Medicare Advantage plans in so far as the consumer is concerned. The carriers have a few more regulations, but nothing that will affect your plan and plan choices in 2014.
You might also be interested to know that your Massachusetts Health Insurance Exchange (where Obamacare plans are sold) will not assist people with Medicare benefits. In other words, you can’t trade your Medicare or purchase additional health insurance on the state health insurance exchange (HIX). If you call the Massachusetts HIX hotline, they will simply redirect you to Medicare.gov. If you qualify for Extra Help, due to your income status, go to your local Social Security Administration office. Learn more about the healthcare law at www.HealthCare.gov.
