Unlike choosing Medicare along with a Medicare Supplement, a Medicare Advantage Plan is more like an HMO or PPO. When you choose the Medicare Advantage option, a provider provides all of coverage that you would otherwise receive from the government (Medicare,) along with your Medicare Supplement.
While a Medicare Advantage plan enjoys the benefit of lower or no premiums at all, it does limit your options when it comes to where you receive your care and from whom you receive it. For some people this is not an issue. If, for example, their regular provider is part of the Medicare Advantage network. For others, it may require you to choose a new doctor.
