What are the different types of Medicare Advantage Plans?


For now, we will focus on the different plan types.  There are five different types of Medicare Advantage Plans.  Keep in mind, these plans must provide all the benefits of Part A and Part B, and many plans offer additional coverage too.  HMO plans charge the lowest premiums but have more restrictions.  Premiums for all plans are low and many are $0.  There are different types of plans:

  • HMO:  Health Maintenance Organization plans
  • PPO:  Preferred Provider Organization plans
  • SNPs:  Special Needs Plans (SNP is pronounced snips)
  • PFFS:  Private Fee-For-Service plans
  • POS:  Point of Service Plans
  • Medical Savings Account Plans

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.
