Absolutely! There can be significant differences. While the television ads that bombard TV viewers all sound similar, the plans themselves can be different. That is a key reason we believe working with a Texas Medicare Advantage Agent can benefit you. Use our free directory to find them.
Here are some things to consider:
Is there a monthly premium (cost)? This is in addition to any Part B monthly premiums you’ll pay. Often these are deducted directly from your Social Security. Ask the local Medicare agent about zero premium plans with drug coverage that are available in your area.
What doctors and medicare facilities are included? Ask to make sure that your doctors, preferred hospital and pharmacies are in the covered network. Otherwise, ask what costs you will need to pay.
Ask about the drug plan coverage. Today, most Medicare Advantage plans has some kind of included drug coverage. But, you’ll want to make sure that your drugs are on the plan’s formulary and how much they cost each time you fill a prescription.
What is covered by the free additional benefits? All those wonderful TV ads have made you aware that plans offer added benefits. Like dental, vision and hearing. But what they cover and who they allow you to use can vary. If these benefits are important to you, it really pays to ask before you sign up.
Use the Association’s online directory to find independent Texas Medicare agents and brokers across Texas. You only have to enter your Zip Code (no other personal information). It’s 100% private. If you see an agent you like you contact them.
