Retiree benefits made easy

Medicare Advantage plans consist of Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), Medicare Part B (medical insurance) and are administered by a private insurer, such as Aetna. Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drug plans further integrate coverage by adding Medicare Part D, so hospital, physician and drug coverage are all covered under one plan.
