Medicare Part A and Part B (also called Original Medicare) are administered by the federal government.
Medicare Advantage plans (Medicare Part C) Medicare prescription drug plans (Medicare Part D) and Medicare Supplement Insurance plans are offered by private insurance companies like Kaiser Permanente.
The availability of Medicare Advantage plans varies by location. Kaiser Permanente sells Medicare Advantage plans in the following states:
Medicare Advantage plans provide all the same coverage as Part A and Part B combined in a single plan. Many Medicare Advantage plans may also provide additional benefits not found in Original Medicare such as dental, vision, hearing or prescription drug coverage.
The cost, coverage and terms of Kaiser Permanente Medicare Advantage plans will vary from one plan or location to the next.
Part D of Medicare provides coverage for prescription drugs. Medicare Part D plans are sold by private insurance companies and can vary in terms of cost, coverage and availability.
Kaiser Permanente offers Medicare Part D plans in the same states listed below:
The list of prescription drugs offered by a plan (the plan formulary) may vary from plan to plan.
Medicare Supplement Insurance is also known as “Medigap.” Medigap plans are sold by private insurance companies, so the cost of plans may vary. Medigap plan benefits are standardized in most states across the country (Massachusetts, Minnesota and Wisconsin offer different plan options).
These plans can help cover certain out-of-pocket costs associated with Original Medicare, such as Medicare deductibles and coinsurance.
Kaiser Permanente does not sell Medicare Supplement Insurance plans.
Because Kaiser Permanente only sells Medicare plans in a few select states, you may want to consider speaking with a licensed insurance agent who can review available plans in your area.
