Original Medicare w/ Supplement vs. Medicare Advantage
Medicare Advantage is one of two way to get full coverage. The second option is add a Alaska Medicare Supplement and a Alaska Medicare Part D Plan to your Original Medicare benefits. Most experts agree that this is the best coverage you can get.
Medicare Supplements (aka, Medigap) protect you from big medical bills. They can also help you lower your overall healthcare costs. If you're not familiar with the ins and outs of supplements, see our Alaska Medigap Plans page. When comparing supplements with Medicare Advantage, it's important to understand that supplements are standardized. This give you the luxury to buy the coverage you need based on the lowest price, and know you're getting exactly the coverage you need.
Just a friendly remainder that Medicare does not cover routine dental care. We have a complete catalog of senior dental plans for Medicare beneficiaries in Alaska.
If you are not aware of the benefits of a Medicare Supplement, and how it pays the big medical bills from an extended illness or hospital stay, visit our Alaska Medigap Plans page. All Medicare Supplements are standardized and regulated. That means you can go with the lowest cost policy and get all of the same benefits.
