Welcome to Part 4 of the series, “New to Medicare,” which I’m writing to help guide those who will soon be going on Medicare Parts, A, B, or both for the first time.
In Part 2, I discussed how Medicare Supplements and Advantage Plans differ as far as coverage, premiums and out of pocket costs, access to doctors and hospitals, and how claims are approved and paid. I suggest reading that column again prior to this edition. It and the others in the series can be found on our website along with podcast and webcast versions as well.
What are the pros and cons of both Medicare Supplements and Advantage Plans?
