    Freedom is living in the best of both worlds
    With a Medicare Advantage PPO plan, you have the freedom to be choosy about which doctors and hospitals you want to visit without referrals and – you’re freedom to reap even greater savings when you access our robust network of quality providers. 

    What are the advantages of a Medicare Advantage PPO plan?
    The great advantage of an PPO plan is that you have the freedom of seeking care either within the network at a modest cost to you or out-of-network at an additional cost. It’s your choice.

    Plus – you’ll have access to hundreds of preventive and wellness programs, discounts on products and services and tools and kits that can help educate and guide you about ways to live healthier. 

    Got a great doctor?
    You can keep it that way. Finding a great doctor can often take years of trying. We know how important it is to find (and stay with) a doctor you trust. That’s what’s great about our PPO – you have the freedom to choose any doctor whether they’re in or out-of our network. And, if you’re in the market for a new doctor, you’ll be happy to know that you’ll find thousands of extremely qualified physicians with established practices and high levels of credentials right in our network. 

    Part D (Prescription Drug) Coverage is included.
    As a member of a Medicare Advantage PPO, you are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part D, Medicare’s prescription drug coverage. So you won’t need to enroll in a separate Part D plan.  

    What are the costs? 
    In most cases, you’ll be responsible for a monthly premium and a small copayment when you see a doctor (except for most Medicare-covered preventive services). You must also continue to pay your Medicare Part B premium if not otherwise paid for under Medicaid or by another third-party. If you choose to use out-of-network providers, you can expect to pay more for these services.

    Let’s check to see if you’re eligible.
    You’re eligible for a Medicare Advantage PPO plan if you’re entitled to Medicare Part A and enrolled in Medicare Part B and live in the service area (counties and states that have access to Anthem coverage). However, individuals with End-Stage Renal Disease are generally not eligible to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. 

    We’ll help you choose which PPO plan is right for you.
