Supplement Plans vs. Advantage HMO or PPO: Full Coverage Health Plan Options in Alaska
Many seniors worry that a Medicare Advantage Plan will limit their services. If this is your worry, there is a second way to get full coverage healthcare. Medicare supplemental insurance combined and a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan work with your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits to give you the best coverage possible. If you are not aware of the benefits offered by Medicare Supplement insurance in Alaska, and how this type of plan protects you from excessive deductibles, co-insurances and co-pays, visit our Medicare Supplement Insurance page. All supplements sold in Alaska are standardized and regulated by the state. That means you can shop for the lowest price and rest assured that you’ll get all of the same benefits.
When and How to Enroll in a Alaska Medicare Advantage Plan
If you want to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan available in Alaska, you can do so during an enrollment period. Alaska seniors turning 65, and those with Medicare Disability, have an Individual Enrollment Period (IEP). Your IEP starts two months before you are eligible and ends two months after eligibility. After that you must enroll or make changes to your plan during the Annual Election Period (AEP), more commonly known as open enrollment. AEP starts 15 October and ends promptly on 7 December.
If you are ready to enroll in an Alaska MA plan, but you’re not sure how, relax, because it’s easy. To get started you’ll need a Medicare insurance agent. Your agent is licensed in your state to sell health and life insurance products. Plus, they are experts on the latest plans available, and they are required by law to follow strict selling and marketing guidelines. It’s all for your protection. If you prefer, you can purchase plans directly through Medicare.gov, as well. Click here to get started.
