Medicare Advantage Plans are offered by private companies that contract with Medicare to provide you  all your Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan, not Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage, vision and dental.
