Pennsylvania Medicare advantage plans (also called Medicare Part C) get a little easier to understand once you think of them as Medicare replacement plans. Instead of working with Medicare, like one of the Medicare supplement plans Pennsylvania has to offer, Medicare Advantage plans in Pennsylvania replace your Medicare coverage with coverage from a private insurance company. These plans resemble what you would receive as part of a group plan with an employer. So you are usually looking at an HMO or PPO style plan that has a network of doctors to choose from. By using one of these doctors you get preferred rates, copays, etc. The cost per month of the plan depends on how much coverage you get. The plans can be as cheap as free for the most basic of plans.

Medicare Advantage plans in Pennsylvania can have all of those attributes but it will cost you to go outside of their networks. So if you have family that you plan on visiting for long periods of time they can be restrictive or expensive.
