Medigap vs. a Louisiana Medicare Advantage Plan
If you find your Original Medicare benefits lacking but can’t afford a Medicare Supplement plan, there is a second option. It’s Medicare Advantage. We have the complete catalog of Medicare Advantage Plans available in Louisiana. Most Medicare Part C plans also include a drug plan.
Medicare Part D Plans Work with Louisiana Medigap Plans
While you’re thinking about a Louisiana Medicare Supplement, it’s a good idea to shop for prescription drug coverage, too. Medicare and Medigap do not cover prescriptions. To protect yourself from the high cost of prescription drugs you’ll need a Medicare Part D Plan. We make shopping easy with our complete catalog of Louisiana Medicare Prescription Drug Plans.
