Medicare Advantage Plans | UnitedHealthcare®

Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage plans cover your hospital (Medicare Part A) and doctor (Medicare Part B), just like Original Medicare. But many offer additional benefits, as well.

One plan. One simple way to get coverage.
The Part A benefits covered by Medicare Advantage (MA) plans include hospital stays, skilled nursing care and home health care. MA plans also cover all the benefits of Medicare Part B, including doctor visits, outpatient care, and preventive services. Many also include additional benefits like routine hearing and vision care, a fitness program, wellness services or a nurse helpline. An MA plan might be a good choice for you if you'd like coverage beyond what Original Medicare provides, but don't need prescription drug coverage.

One plan. One card. One simple way to start living healthier.
With a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan (MAPD), you get Part A coverage, Part B coverage and Part D prescription drug coverage in one convenient plan. An MAPD plan might be a good choice for you if you like the benefits offered by an MA plan, but also need prescription drug coverage.

One company. Many plans. Find the one that may be a good fit for you.
When it comes to Medicare Advantage plans, one size does not fit all. UnitedHealthcare�� Medicare Solutions plans include Medicare Advantage plans featuring UnitedHealthcare�� or AARP�� brand names (such as AARP�� MedicareComplete��). Plans offer combinations of benefits and features designed to fit a wide variety of budgets and healthcare needs.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans provide the same benefits as Original Medicare, and often more. Additional benefits can include routine hearing and vision care. These plans cover all the benefits of Medicare Part A, including hospital stays, skilled nursing care and home health care, but not hospice care (which is still covered by your Part A benefit). These plans also cover all the benefits of Medicare Part B, including doctor visits, outpatient care, screenings, shots and lab tests. Many plans also include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. Medicare Advantage plans work similarly to employer-sponsored health insurance plans that you may have had or currently have, which may help you continue a similar level of coverage to what you have now.

The family of UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Solutions plans includes Medicare Advantage plans featuring UnitedHealthcare® or AARP® brand names (such as AARP® MedicareComplete®). All plans include an annual out-of-pocket maximum to help you budget for your health care costs. In addition, most plans include worldwide emergency care and prescription drug coverage. Some plans also have no additional monthly premium beyond what you already pay for Part B.
