What’s the advantage of Medicare Advantage?
When you become a member of a WellCare TexanPlus Medicare Advantage plan, you get more benefits, value and care on your journey to better health.
- Medicare Advantage plans give you Part A (hospital) and Part B (medical) coverage – the benefits found in Original Medicare – and many plans include Part D (prescription drug) coverage as well as extras like dental, vision and hearing.
- You typically pay lower out-of-pocket costs by choosing a Medicare Advantage plan. And unlike Original Medicare, our Medicare Advantage plans have a limit to your yearly out-of-pocket expenses.
- Medicare Advantage plans work with you and your providers to ensure you get the right care when you need it most.
