How can Medicare Advantage plans help save money on health care costs and everyday expenses?

Andromada DeBerry, a licensed insurance agent and spokesperson for, says, “Medicare Advantage plans, also known as Medicare Part C plans, offer the same coverage as Medicare Parts A and B, and most offer additional benefits that original Medicare doesn’t cover, and often for a $0 monthly premium. So If you’re new to Medicare, have recently moved, or are losing coverage, you may be eligible to enroll today.”

Continuing, she says, “Some people with Medicare Advantage plans have saved nearly $2,000 a year in out-of-pocket costs, compared to those with only Medicare Parts A and B.”

Qualifying members may also receive an allowance that can help pay for vitamins, supplements, pain relievers, toothpaste, cold, cough, and allergy medicine. Many Medicare Advantage plans have $0 monthly premiums and also offer $0 deductibles or $0 copays for primary care visits.
