Understanding Medicare

Medicare Plans We Accept

Whether you’ve just started thinking about Medicare or are thinking about making a change to your current plan, we have some resources for our patients that can help educate you about your options.

Reliant Patient Resources:

Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage – what’s the difference?

Compare traditional, medigap, and advantage plansOriginal Medicare offers health insurance to U.S. citizens and qualified legal residents age 65 and older. People under 65 with certain medical problems also qualify for it. Original Medicare is run by the federal government.

Medicare Advantage is a different way to get Medicare. It covers everything that Original Medicare does, plus more. It’s sold by private insurance companies.

To compare Traditional Medicare, Medigap, and Medicare Advantage, use this chart.

Many people sign up for Original Medicare when they turn 65 and then never look back. But, they may be missing out. Medicare Advantage may be a better fit for their needs. Learn more about Medicare Advantage here.
