If you have Medicare and VA, Tricare, or CHAMPVA, you can choose coverage directly through the government (Original) or from a private plan. Medicare Advantage are plans offered by private insurance carriers who are contracted & regulated by the government. Medicare Advantage doesn’t supplement your Medicare, it becomes it. Just like Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage includes Part A coverage for hospitalization and Part B benefits for doctors & outpatient care. In addition to medical coverage, Medicare Advantage typically includes additional benefits for zero cost, which aren’t included with Standard Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Benefits
Just like Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage includes hospital and doctors coverage.
Tricare & CHAMPVA supplement Medicare Advantage & will cover medical copays. Advantage can also be a good option for Veterans with VA benefits.
In most cases you’ll get dental, vision, hearing, fitness and other benefits for zero extra cost.
Plans designed for Veterans & Retired Military can include a rebate that lowers your monthly cost of Medicare.
