Medicare Advantage and Original Medicare: Know the Difference

Medicare Advantage plans differ from Original Medicare plans, which CMS offers. Medicare Advantage plans are offered by a private insurer and have benefits not typically included in Original Medicare. These benefits can include:

  • Oral evaluations
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Cleanings
  • Preventive 
  • Restorative
  • Endodontics
  • Oral surgery
  • Periodontics
  • Prosthodontics

Florida Blue Medicare Advantage includes HMO and PPO medical plans—all have PPO dental embedded.

Providers are paid according to the Medicare Advantage fee schedule.
