Do You Know What to Look for In a Medicare Advantage Plan?

What to Look for In a Medicare Advantage Plan

Everybody wants great benefits at a great price. When you’re choosing a Medicare plan, make sure you understand the benefits and all of the costs. Read all the information and don’t hesitate to ask plenty of questions. Some of the benefits you want to look for are:

No Referrals to See a Contracted Specialist

Some plans may require you to get a referral from a primary care physician first before seeing a specialist. That means you could pay TWO copays. This is very important to remember. Don’t forget to check and see if your Medicare plan requires a referral. With Viva Medicare, our members love the fact that most of our plans don’t require you to get a referral from your primary care doctor to see a contracted specialist.

Extensive Network of Doctors & Hospitals

What’s the point of having great benefits if your doctor or specialist doesn’t accept your Medicare Advantage plan. Before choosing any plan, make sure your doctors are in the plan network and you understand how the plan network works, as some may be tricky.  With Viva Medicare, we have an extensive network of doctors and hospitals in our 24 county service area. You’re also covered worldwide for emergencies, so it doesn’t matter where you are, if you have an emergency, Viva Medicare will take care of you.
