Starting in 2022, Medicare beneficiaries in California will have the option to enroll in either traditional Medicare or one of two new types of managed care plans: the Pacific Advantage Plan or the Senior Care Action Network.
Both of these new plans will offer beneficiaries a set monthly premium, along with copayments for doctor visits and prescription drugs. In addition, both plans will cover outpatient services, as well as hospital stays and skilled nursing facility care.
The main difference between the two plans is that the Pacific Advantage Plan will also cover certain dental and vision benefits, while the Senior Care Action Network will provide coverage for hearing aids and home health care services.
If you’re currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, you’ll need to decide whether to switch to one of the new plans or remain in your current plan. And if you’re not currently enrolled in Medicare Advantage, but are thinking about switching to one of the new plans, it’s important to compare all of your options before making a decision.
