Most individuals who have Medicare get their insurance from Original Medicare; however, some choose from a Medicate Advantage Plan. It contracts with the federal state where client benefits are paid on an individual basis. You will still have your Medicare if you enroll for this plan; meaning you still pay your monthly Part B premium and Part A if you have. It can cover unnecessary medical services under Medicare; check what is provided if you are unsure.
The plans of InnovaCare Health can provide extra coverage including wellness programs, dental, or vision among others. A majority include prescriptions. You may have to compensate all the costs if the plan says your costs are unnecessary medically although the decision is appealable. If you wish, ask the plan for a comprehensively written coverage decision to ensure the service is medically necessary. You might need to pay all the costs if you did not ask whether the service is inclusive or not.
