Medicare Advantage


Whether you are choosing health care coverage for yourself, or helping someone else find a plan, UnitedHealthcare® believes you should be able to choose coverage that is a good fit for your needs. And their role is to make health care coverage work for you.

What is Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans are run by private insurance companies and combine Medicare Parts A (hospital coverage) and B (doctor coverage) plus additional benefits all in one plan. Many plans also include prescription drug coverage and are known as MA-PD or Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drug plans. Medicare Advantage plans may come with no additional premium beyond what you already pay for Medicare Part B. To be eligible to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you must have Original Medicare (Parts A and B) and continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium each month, unless it is otherwise paid for under Medicaid or by another party.
