Medicare Advantage (MA) plans offer all the benefits of Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans also include Part D prescription drug coverage.
Many plans also include extra benefits like:
- routine hearing, dental and vision care
- a fitness program
- wellness services
- a nurse helpline
An MA plan is a good choice if you'd like coverage beyond what Original Medicare provides, but don't need prescription drug coverage.
An MAPD plan is a good choice if you want all the benefits offered by an MA plan PLUS Part D prescription drug coverage in one convenient plan.
