Medicare Advantage provides many benefits

A letterbox with the inscription Letter to the editor

Getting older can be challenging. It seems like every day, there’s a new technology to learn or news to keep up with—not to mention, health complications start to arise.

One thing that should never be confusing is accessing health care. I made the switch to Medicare Advantage a while back, and I have been incredibly pleased ever since.

Not only do I believe I receive higher quality care, but my plan offers me additional benefits, such as vision and dental. While vision and dental insurance may not seem important, as you age it’s more important than ever to get regular teeth and eye exams to prevent decay or disease.

However, the greatest impact that the program has made on my life has been transportation services. For older Americans who can’t drive anymore and don’t have family around to take them to their appointments, they must rely on other means of transportation. I have been able to take advantage of this benefit.

Medicare Advantage ensures their enrollees can access affordable quality care, whenever and however they need.
