Who can join a Medicare Advantage Plan?

You can generally join one of these Medicare Advantage Plans:

If all of these apply:

  • You live in the service area of the plan you want to join. The plan can give you more information about its service area. If you live in another state for part of the year, ask if the plan will cover you there.
  • You have Medicare Part A and Part B.
  • You're a U.S. citizen or lawfully present in the U.S.

Starting January 2021, people with ESRD can choose either Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan when deciding how to get Medicare coverage. Learn more.
