2018 Aetna Medicare Advantage Plans:
Medicare PPO plans offer freedom of choice with doctors and hospitals. Although you will pay more if you see a doctor or hospital which is considered “out-of-network.” PPO’s typically have higher copays and or deductibles than their counterpart, the HMO plan. Flexibility is usually why a person will enroll in a PPO. The ability to see several different doctors without needing a referral from their Primary Care Physician.
Medicare HMO plans typically offer $0 premium plans, have very comprehensive coverage and many times includes basic dental or vision coverage. The downside to HMO plans are they are very restrictive when you are wishing to see different doctors. When you sign up for the HMO, you need to choose one doctor from their list, and that doctor organizes your care and will refer you to a specialist within the same medical group. But the referral must first be approved.
To join Aetna Medicare Select Plan (HMO), you must be entitled to Medicare Part A, be enrolled in Medicare Part B, and live in our service area which includes Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
Medicare HMO and PPO plans usually include the Medicare Part D Rx coverage. Medicare Supplement plans do NOT include the Part D coverage, so you will need to enroll in a stand-along-plan to help pay for your medications. Feel free to call me, I can help you with finding a Part D Rx plan to fit your prescription needs.
Enrolling in any of the above plans is quick and easy.
