How Does a PFFS Plan Work?
A Medicare Advantage Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plan is a type of Medicare Advantage plan (also known as Medicare Part C) in which you have the freedom to choose any doctor or hospital that accepts the plan's terms and conditions. The health plan, rather than the Medicare Program, decides what you'll pay for the services you will receive. Some of the advantages of PFFS Medicare Advantage plans are that you may pay less for Medicare-covered benefits and may have extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn't cover. PFFS plans may also include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.
A Private Fee–for–Service plan is not Medicare supplement insurance. Providers who do not contract with our plan are not required to see you except in an emergency.
Enroll in a Medicare Advantage PFFS Plan Today!
You may be eligible to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan during your Initial Coverage Election Period (ICEP), when you become eligible for Medicare Parts A and B. This is usually during the three months prior, the month of, and the three months after your 65th birthday month or your 25th month of disability.
Medicare's Special Election Period allows you to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan if you meet other conditions. Find a list of qualifying conditions.
