It is required the Medicare Advantage Plans to cover all services that the Original Medicare would cover, except for hospice care. The Original Medicare will cover hospice, even if the individual is in a Medicare Advantage Plan. With all types of Medicare Advantage Plan, urgent care needs and emergency cost will always be covered. These plans may choose not to cover cost for services, and it is important to check with the provider before moving forth with the service. Extra Coverage is offered through the Medicare Advantage Plans for things such as dental, wellness and health programs, vision and hearing. Most of the plans will cover a Medicare prescription drug coverage under the Part D plan. And in addition to the Part B premium, a monthly premium will normally be paid for the Medicare Advantage Plan. During 2016,, most people payed a premium of one-hundred and four dollars and ninety cents per month. If a service is performed that is not medically necessary, all cost for the service may have to be payed out of pocket, but individuals do they have the right to appeal these decisions. Individuals may also ask for the plan to provide a written advance coverage decision that the service was in fact medically necessary, and that it will be covered. However, if the plan does not cover the cost of the service, then the individual will have to pay the cost if an advance coverage decision is not asked for. A plans contact information can be found by searching by the name of the plan, or by performing a personalized search, found through a general search.
