Medicare Advantage plans or Medicare Part C combine Medicare Parts A & B (Original Medicare) into one plan. Instead of receiving the benefits of Parts A & B through Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans are offered through private insurers, like UnitedHealthcare®, that are approved by Medicare.
Many Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans also include prescription drug coverage, basic vision, and dental care coverage not offered by Original Medicare.
Additionally, each Medicare Advantage plan is required by law to feature an annual maximum cap on out-of-pocket costs, meaning once that limit is reached the beneficiary will pay nothing for additional covered medical services.
UnitedHealthcare® offers many different Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans through UnitedHealthcare® Medicare plans.
Some benefits include: Routine Eye Exam, Eyewear Credit, Routine Hearing Exam, Hearing Aids, Fitness Membership, Preventive & Comprehensive Dental, OTC Catalog, Personal Emergency Response System, Virtual Visits, Virtual Mental Health Visits, NurseLine and Transportation services.
