Her Best Match: Medicare Supplement Planmy best match

Vivian is turning 65 this year and she is excited about this stage of life. She likes to take trips abroad and plans to spend winters in Phoenix to be near her daughter so it is important to her to be able to see any doctor she wants, wherever she is. And she likes predictability — including predictable $0 copays.

Vivian's Best Match:
Vivian discovered that the Medica Signature Solution Medicare Supplement Extended Basic plan gives her what she needs.

  • The plan has $0 copays for most medical services.
  • Vivian can visit any doctor that accepts Medicare anywhere in the U.S.
  • The benefits stay the same from year to year.
  • Vivian does not take prescription drugs but since Signature Solution is a medical-only plan, she found an affordable stand-alone Part D plan in case she needs drug coverage in the future.

Their Best Match: Medicare Supplement Planmy best match

Dawn and Michael have been enjoying retirement for a few years, especially the adventures they have gone on visiting state parks across the country. Being outdoors makes them feel alive — from hiking to riding their horses Daisy and Jasper. Since travel is a big part of their lives, they wanted a plan with broad doctor choice. They also wanted to be able to customize their coverage.

Dawn & Michael's Best Match:
Dawn and Michael decided that the Medica Signature Solution Medicare Supplement Basic plan gives them what they need.

  • Doctor choice is no problem since they can visit any doctor that accepts Medicare anywhere in the U.S.
  • With the Signature Solution Basic plan, Dawn and Michael can add up to four riders so each one can customize his or her plan to fit their unique needs.
  • Since Signature Solution is a medical-only plan and both Dawn and Michael take prescription drugs, they shopped around and found a very affordable Part D drug plan that covers their current prescription needs.

Her Best Match: Medicare Advantage Planmy best match

Lynda cares about her health and works everyday to make healthy choices. She also cares about the health of her finances so premium cost was an important factor when she was choosing her Medicare plan. Lynda likes to keep things simple and was attracted to the idea of a plan with combined medical and Part D drug coverage.

Lynda's Best Match:
Lynda decided that the Medica Advantage Solution plan was exactly what she needed.

  • The monthly premium was low and the maximum out-of-pocket limit put a cap on how much she might have to pay each year for copays/coinsurance.
  • Advantage Solution combines medical and Part D drug coverage in one convenient plan.
  • Plus, Lynda got a free SilverSneakers membership through Advantage Solution. Lynda's favorite gym was in the SilverSneakers network so she no longer needs to pay her monthly $50 gym membership fee.
