Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage is a managed care health insurance option to replace the traditional fee for service Medicare parts A and B. Currently, dialysis patients are unable to enroll in these plans. DPC does not advocate that dialysis patients abandon traditional Medicare to enroll in a managed care plan. But, are strong supporters of patient choice. Such choices should include staying in employer group health insurance, access to exchange health plans under the Affordable Care Act, the ability to buy Medigap supplemental insurance, and the ability to enroll in Medicare Advantage plans.
