Medicare Advantage Plans & Physician Practice Services: Some Basic Information

Medicare Advantage Plans & Services: General Details

For those readers unfamiliar Medicare Advantage plans, they are specific health insurance plans offered by private businesses that have contracts with the U.S. government to provide customers with additional benefits that standard Medicare plans do not. The Medicare Advantage plans reportedly pay for all services and expenses. It includes health maintenance groups where customers pay a set monthly premium for numerous medical services from doctors who are registered with the business.

If the patient gets treated by a physician or other health services provider who is not contracted with the specific group, the health insurance plan will not cover the patient unless it is established that the treatment was given in emergency circumstances. Additionally, “provider preferred organizations” are doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers who belong to a contracted network of providers. Members or customers of a network like this pay less than those who don’t have a membership. Of course, program members are free to seek treatment from doctors who are not part of the network but this costs members a significantly higher amount of money because again the benefits are restricted to treatment within the network.
