What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?
Medicare Advantage Plans coordinate and manage your Medicare coverage. A Medicare Advantage Plan can provide more benefits than traditional Medicare. These benefits can include:
- Lower co-pays
- Preventive coverage
- Prescription drug coverage
- No deductibles
- Gym membership to Elmwood Fitness Center, at no additional charge
It can be challenging to sort through many Medicare options. That’s why Ochsner wants to help you choose quality care with a plan that contracts with Ochsner. It’s a good idea to start considering Medicare plans early and compare benefits carefully. The initial Medicare enrollment period lasts seven months. You can sign up for Medicare three months before you turn 65, the month of your 65th birthday and for three months after you turn 65.
Ochsner accepts two health plans that offer several Medicare Advantage Plans –
Patients with traditional Medicare and Medicare supplement plans also can receive care at Ochsner.
A Medicare Advantage Plan focuses intensely on preventing disease and keeping you healthy. Ochsner shares this focus. We offer a wide range of primary medical care and health screenings.
As the largest health system in the region, Ochsner has vast experience in caring for seniors. Our experience has helped us design care that meets the needs of older patients whose focus is on staying healthy and active. Our patients benefit from our Electronic Medical Record system (EMR). This coordinated system of care gives Ochsner physicians 24/7 access to a patient's complete medical history at all Ochsner locations, resulting in fewer duplication of tests, less complications and proven lower healthcare costs.
There are many reasons to choose Ochsner, but the most important is you receive healthcare with peace of mind. There’s nothing more valuable, especially for seniors. As you turn 65, Ochsner is committed to being your partner for good health and quality care through all the years of your life.
