With thousands of options available, the process of selecting a Medicare plan can be confusing and complicated. Selecting the wrong plan can substantially impact your healthcare costs. A few of the most common Medicare plans, along with their advantages and disadvantages, are listed below.

Medicare Parts A & B: These plans are managed by the federal government and provide eligible individuals with coverage for and access to doctors, hospitals, or other healthcare providers who accept Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans: These plans offer enrollees low or even $0 monthly premiums and include prescription drug coverage. However, members must use in-network providers and referrals to specialists. There may also be copayments for doctor and hospital visits.

Medicare Supplement Plans: These plans generally have low-to-no copayments for visits to an open network of providers or hospitals, although they usually have higher monthly premiums than Medicare Advantage plans.
