Tips To Get The Best Medicare Advantage Plan
Medicare is a national program. But Medicare options are different based on where you live. For that reason, it really pays to speak with at least one local Medicare insurance agent. Some offer just Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. Others will offer just Medicare Supplement (Medigap).
Today, many offer both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement. You can find a great listing of local Medicare agents on the Association’s website. It is 100% free and 100% private. Click the highlighted link to access.
