    Medicare vs Medicare Advantage

    Does anyone have insight to changing plans? You seem to need a masters degree to navigate all the information. I have had original Medicare for at least 15 years...wondering how many of us use MedicareAdvantage , if any

    During the open enrollment period, call the company that you have selected. Sign up. They will do the rest.

    Yes, I use Advantage. I have a plan (expensive) that pays all of my co-pays for Medicare A & B. I have been averaging 3 hospitalizations per year and the Advantage plan pays everything that Medicare doesn't pay. Over the year I save thousands of dollars.
