Medicare Advantage at The Polyclinic
We want to keep you healthy, out of the hospital, and doing the things you love most. In our Medicare Advantage program, we coordinate your care in a personalized and comprehensive way, collaborating with your primary care physician and insurance company. We offer multiple Medicare Advantage plans to give you options on what fits your needs.
What is Medicare Advantage?
Medicare Advantage plans (Part C) provide the same hospital and medical benefits as Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) and can provide additional benefits like vision and dental – even gym memberships. Medicare Advantage plans bundle your benefits into one plan with one card from one insurance company, often offering a more cost effective option.
Working to Keep You Healthy
You benefit from innovative programs and services such as:
- Claims Processing
- Referral Coordination

- Social Workers
- Nursing Home Care

These services are managed and overseen by The Physicians Care Network (PCN). Learn more about PCN.
