These plans are also called Medicare Part C, and they are designed to offer at least the same coverage as Medicare Part A and Part B.

Medicare Advantage Plan Types

- Preferred Provider Organization Plans (PPO)
- Prive Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS)
- Special Needs Plans (SNPs)
Our licensed insurance agents can help you find the right plan to fit your needs and help answer any questions you have.
Medicare Advantage plans vary by company and area. You can view plans and rates in your using our website.
Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs)
HMO plans are affordable options that provide coverage in a particular network. With an HMO you choose a primary care physician (PCP) and must remain in the network to get coverage, unless in an emergency.
Most HMOs include prescription drug coverage.
HMOs have monthly premiums as low as $0 depending on your area and the companies providing the plans.
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)
PPO plans allow you to see doctors in and out of the network, though staying within the network typically results in lower costs.
Prescriptions are covered in many of the PPO plans, however, it’s important to see how each plan covers your own personal medications.
Our licensed agents can help determine which plan is right for you as well as if your doctors accept the plan.
Private Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS)
PFFS plans are unique in that the plan decides the amounts that it will pay doctors and providers. To get coverage doctors must agree to the terms of the plan.
Visiting a provider outside of the plans agreements may result in much higher costs. Prescription drugs might be offered in a PFFS plan, however, if you find a plan you like that doesn’t offer prescription coverage you may enroll in a stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.
There is no need to choose a primary care doctor with a PFFS plan.
Special Needs Plans (SNPs)
Special Needs Plans are tailored to people with specific diseases or situations. You must qualify to enroll in one of the SNPs.
You may qualify for one of these plans for conditions such as:
- Alcohol dependence
- Various autoimmune disorders
- End-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring dialysis
- Many more. Call us for more information on these plans and to see if you qualify

Shopping for Medicare Advantage Plans in 2023
There are many factors that go into choosing the right Medicare Advantage plan. Your current health conditions, which doctors you use, and where you live are just a few.
When choosing a Medicare Advantage plan in 2023, you need to consider the following:
Is your doctor in the plan’s network? It’s important to allow us to check to see which plans your current providers accept.
- Compare out-of-pocket costs. Each plan will have a monthly premium (many Medicare Advantage plans have no premium) and a maximum out-of-pocket cost, which is the most you’ll pay in a year for covered health care.
Star ratings of the plan. The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) assigns star ratings to each plan for its performance.
Expected out-of-pocket costs while on the plan. While many Medicare Advantage plans in 2023 will offer a $0 premium, you need to consider any costs you might incur above and beyond that throughout the year.
The Best Medicare Advantage Plans in 2023
Medicare and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have a rating system for Medicare Advantage plans each year.
These are called Star Ratings.
Both Advantage and Part D prescription drug plans are rated on a scale from 1 to 5:
One Star = Poor
Two Stars = Below average
Three Stars = Average
Four Stars = Above average
Five Stars = Excellent
Because all plans are different and everyone’s needs are different, there is no one best plan for everyone.
The good news is that there is almost always a plan to fit everyone’s needs and budget.
When to Enroll
The Medicare annual enrollment period (AEP) begins each October 15th and runs through December 7th.
During this time frame, you may enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan or change to a different plan.
