Providers Offering Medicare Advantage Plans As Enrollment Deadline Approaches
(Undated) -- As the December 7th open-enrollment deadline for Medicare approaches, private insurers who offer Medicare Advantage plans are looking for customers. George Renaudin runs Humana's Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan. Since Medicare covers only 80-percent of major health expenses, it's common for Medicare recipients to also have a supplemental private plan. Renaudin says Medicare Advantage plans provide supplemental coverage and can also offer things like preventive care.
