Original Medicare is fantastic, but it doesn’t cover everything you might need. Yes, you can get regular doctor visits, hospital stays, and even specialist care. But what about dental coverage, vision care, or hearing aids? Relying on Original Medicare for all your coverage will leave you paying out of pocket in a lot of situations, some of them quite surprising! That’s where Medicare Advantage can help.
With a Medicare Advantage plan, you can get all the benefits you’d expect from Original Medicare, plus more benefits designed to provide you with more comprehensive coverage. You can also supplement your Original Medicare coverage with Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, or Medicare Supplementary Insurance (Medigap). There are a variety of plans available to you in the Davenport, IA area, and MedicareInsurance.com can help you filter through the noise and find a plan that works for you.
Medicare Advantage is a government-subsidized private insurance program. This means that all Medicare Advantage plans offer the same benefits as Original Medicare, like hospital coverage and regular checkups. However, because the plans are privately run, they can also offer additional benefits to attract enrollment! Here are some common benefits found in Medicare Advantage plans.

Much like with Original Medicare, you can only enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan at specific times.
When you first become eligible for Medicare, typically by turning 65, you enter an Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). This period lasts seven months, usually centered around the month of your birthday. This can vary if you become eligible for Medicare because of a disability or other reasons.
You can also enroll in Medicare Advantage during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), from October 15 – December 7 each year. If you’re already enrolled in a Medicare plan, you can also change your coverage during the Open Enrollment Period (OEP) from January 1 – March 31.
If you’ve recently moved, or if a 5-Star Medicare Advantage plan is available in your area, you may be eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP).
