Medicare Advantage (MA) plans in Utah are comprehensive alternatives to Original Medicare, replacing Parts A and B and often Part D. These plans may include additional benefits that Original Medicare doesn't cover, such as dental, vision and hearing care. Most Medicare Advantage plans include drug coverage (Part D) and require you to use healthcare providers who are involved in the plan's network. There are several types of Medicare Advantage plans available in Utah, including HMO and PPO plans, as well as regional SNP and PFFS plans.
All Medicare Advantage plans offer the same coverage as Original Medicare, but additional benefits may be accompanied by an increase in premium.
