Original Medicare w/ Supplement vs. Medicare Advantage
Medicare Advantage is one of two way to get full coverage. The second option is add a Louisiana Medicare Supplement and a Louisiana Medicare Part D Plan to your Original Medicare benefits. Most experts agree that this is the best coverage you can get.
If the benefits of Medicare Supplement insurance (aka, Medigap) are new to you, visit our Louisiana Medigap Plans page. Unlike Medicare Advantage, supplements are standardized. That means you can go with the lowest cost policy that offers the coverage you need and get all of the same benefits as the most expensive policy.
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 Louisiana.
A Medicare Supplement policy protects you from big medical bills and helps you lower the total annual cost of your healthcare. See our Louisiana Medigap Plans page for more information. The good news is that all supplemental insurance is standardized, offering you the luxury to buy the coverage you need based on the lowest price.
