Why Original Medicare beats an Advantage plan

Updated: 3 days ago

People with Original Medicare are often lured to switch to an "advantage" plan with a promised reward. But what's do you lose?


A Medicare Advantage plan replaces Original Medicare with different coverage and a different healthcare provider network.


An offer to switch may include a reward, but the costs are often misunderstood. Consider these costs before leaving Original Medicare:

  • You lose your Med-gap plan (supplement);

  • You may not have access to the doctors you want; and

  • Your coverage may be less than before with a Medi-gap plan.

Keep Original Medicare because it's better.

  • More products to choose from for a Medi-gap plan;

  • Medi-gap plan comparison is easy with lettered plan types; and

  • You can usually change your supplement on your birthday.

When new to Medicare, remember that Original Medicare with a Med-gap plan is best plan when you can't settle for less.
