Mrs. Radford asks whether there are any special eligibility requirements for Medicare Advantage. What should you tell her?
To be eligible for Medicare Advantage, an individual must be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B. However, it’s important to note that while she must live in the plan’s service area, there are no additional medical reviews or acceptance processes, and she cannot be enrolled in a Medigap policy at the same time as a Medicare Advantage plan. Additionally, the availability of Medicare Advantage plans can vary by geographic location, so not all plans will be available in every part of the United States.
Mrs. Radford must be entitled to Part A and enrolled in Part B to enroll in Medicare Advantage.
