Pay close attention to a Medicare Advantage plan’s maximum out-of-pocket limit.

One critical benefit of Medicare Advantage plans is that they limit your out-of-pocket costs for Medicare Approved services at ,700 or less.

In 2013 the average maximum out-of-pocket limit for a Medicare Advantage plan was between ,000 and ,000 (source). But, some plans had caps as low as 0 for Medicare approved services received “in-network.”

During the annual enrollment period, research the plan’s maximum out-of-pocket limit and be sure you could cover those out-of-pocket costs in the event of an emergency.
