The reason a Medicare Advantage plan is so named is because it is supposed to have certain advantages over the original fee-for-service Medicare.  Some of these advantages have al ready been mentioned, but two other very important advantages are additional services not covered by the original fee-for-service Medicare and Prescription Drugs.  Some additional services or benefits offered by Medicare Advantage plans include:

  • Medicare Part A deductible paid
  • Transportation to and from Doctors
  • Extended Home Health Care
  • Free home delivered meals
  • Over-the-counter items
  • Medicare Part B deductible paid
  • Routine dental care
  • Comprehensive dental care
  • Eye exams
  • Eye glasses or contact lenses
  • Hearing exams
  • Hearing Aids cash subsidies
  • Podiatry care
  • Acupuncture

Some MA plans may include a AARP Medicare Prescription Drug Card (at no extra monthly premium).  When a Medicare Advantage plan has a drug card, it is referred to as a Medicare Advantage plan with Prescription Drugs (MAPD), or more commonly an M-A-P-D plan.

A visit to a podiatrist is a benefit covered by most ARRP insurance plans. However, there can be restrictions due to changes in recent health care coverages.

To avoid any additional cost to the patient, Podiatry Group of Georgia will work with your insurance company to get your services covered. Sometimes this requires our office to send in a letter of medical necessity which will state the reasoning behind the recommended treatment and include the patient’s history and diagnosis.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will contact your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that services are covered and that no referrals are required. This allows us to provide you with the best care while making sure you are aware of your insurance benefits for any treatments or services recommended for your specific condition before they are performed.
