The State of Arizona, which is known as a popular spot for retirement, boasts almost 50 different carrier options for Medicare Advantage and/or Medicare Part D coverage, including some very well known carriers such as Horizon Insurance, Highmark Senior Health Company, United Healthcare, Regence BlueShield, Humana and Aetna and Coventry.
While Maricopa, Pima and Pinal Counties in the State of Arizona offer 27-30 different plan options for seniors, the remaining counties in Arizona offer fewer options; however, those options tend to be from the bigger-named carriers.
The three different types of plans offered to residents of the State of Arizona are HMO, PPO, and PFFS (Private Fee-for-Service plans). Depending on the Medicare providers, prescriptions, regular Medicare care and financial status of a senior, one type of plan may be more appropriate and advantageous over the next. This is why researching your options is important when enrolling in a Medicare plan.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2018, 792,963 residents enrolled in Original Medicare and 486,758 residents enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan.
The Arizona Department of Economic Security maintains a website containing helpful information and definitions of Medicare terminology to help their residents understand the complicated topic of Medicare.
