What is Medicare Plus Plan?
Medicare Plus Plan is a premium-based Medicare insurance plan that was created to help beneficiaries reach their health care goals. The plan offers additional benefits, like coverage for specialist visits and prescription drugs, at no extra cost to the beneficiary.
With Medicare Plus Plan, beneficiaries can better manage their care by expanding their options beyond traditional Medicare coverage. For example, they may be eligible for benefits such as vision and dental coverage through the plan. Additionally, beneficiaries can receive treatment for conditions not covered by Medicare, such as cancer therapy.
In order to be eligible for Medicare Plus Plan, you must have been enrolled in a Medicare policy at the time of your retirement or when you became eligible for Social Security benefits. If you are already enrolled in a Medicare policy, your policy will automatically include the benefit of Medicare Plus Plan.
