Comparing The Best Medicare Advantage Plans can be difficult. The average Medicare beneficiary has 33 different available MA plans to compare. Good luck! Calling a toll-free number will likely connect you with an agent who favors just one or two plans. Here are the top Medicare Advantage plan companies based on 2021 enrollment.
Comparing plans is well worth doing. While Medicare is a national program, Medicare Advantage plans can be very local.
That’s why it pays to speak to someone familiar with plans specific to your area.

There are different types of Medicare Advantage Plans.
Free this. And press that. The television ads shout free, free and more free. How is that possible?
Indeed, some Medicare Advantage plans are free. That is because Medicare pays the insurance company (Aetna, Cigna, Humana, etc) a monthly amount to take on the cost of providing you with healthcare.
It’s especially good if you need little care. The insurer keeps the money from Medicare. That’s why they especially like adding younger people to their plan.
But, once you start using the benefits of the plan (when you start needing care), expect to start spending money. The plans often have out of pocket costs. That’s how the insurance carriers make money. They get the money from Medicare. And, from you via cost-sharing. Bottom line: Make sure you know what FREE really means.
