We want to keep you healthy, out of the hospital, and doing what you love most. As your health care provider, we recommend Medicare Advantage plans because they allow us to coordinate your care in a personalized and comprehensive way, working closely with your primary care provider and insurance company.

Medicare Advantage Plans Offer Convenience and Simplicity

Under Medicare Advantage, all of your benefits* are covered through one insurance company. Medicare Advantage plans provide Part A and Part B with benefits beyond Original Medicare, such as a “hands on” annual physical, gym memberships, vision, dental, and out-of-the-country coverage. Medicare Advantage plans can be a more cost effective option than purchasing each part of Medicare separately, and often include prescription coverage (Part D).

Our Medicare Advantage patients benefit from our Care Advantage Program, a team focused on coordinated and preventive care; chronic condition management; and health and wellness goals.
