Medicare Supplements or Medicare Advantage Plans?
There's no doubt that a Medicare Supplement can be costly, so they are not for everyone. We still think it's the best option if you can afford it. For everyone else, Medicare Advantage is a fantastic way to get full coverage healthcare benefits. An Advantage plan is HMO or PPO health insurance for seniors. Like a Medicare supplement it protects you from high medical bills. Here's a complete catalog of California Medicare Advantage Plans for you to compare.
A Medicare Supplement Pays Your Hospital and Doctor Bills. What about Your Prescriptions?
Medicare does not pay for your prescriptions. For that, there's Part D. If you need help with your prescriptions, take a look at the California Medicare Part D Prescription Plans.
Medicare Supplements Don't Cover Dental
Unlike a Medicare Advantage plan, California Medigap plans can't offer coverage for routine dental care. The only time Original Medicare and your Medicare supplement insurance can pay for a dental procedure is when it is deemed medically necessary.
If you need dental coverage, your best option is to get dental insurance. MedicareWire catalogs dental insurance for seniors in California. In this catalog you will find both traditional dental plans and dental discount plans. Learn more on our Senior Dental Plans page.
