6:08 pm
contracts directly with the federal government to provide this coverage. so humana can offer affordable monthly plan premiums, and in some areas, you'll pay no monthly plan premium. now, let's take just a moment to see how a humana medicare advantage plan compares to a medicare supplement plan and to original medicare. this bar represents original medicare. as you can see, it covers hospital stays and doctor office visits when you're sick. keep in mind, you have to pay a deductible for each hospital stay and a deductible applies to doctor visits. next, let's look at medicare supplement plans. as you can see, they cover the same things as medicare alone, but they also cover your medicare deductibles and co-insurance. medicare supplements cover more, but you may pay higher premiums than you do with a medicare advantage plan. and remember, if you want drug coverage with a medicare supplement or original

6:11 pm
for many preventive services like mammograms and prostate exams. plus, you get the prescription drug coverage that covers generic and brand name drugs. i want to make sure we really clarify what this means and how it differs from original medicare. if you use original medicare and you visit the doctor, you have to first meet your annual deductible. and then you're still responsible for 20% of the charges. this means your out of pocket expenses can vary depending on the cost of the service. with a humana medicare advantage plan you have no medicare deductible to worry about so costs are predictable and easy to budget. that's why it's so important for you to call and request your free copy of the decision guide and informational dvd. you can call the number on your screen, right now. whatever you do, don't delay. thousands of people, including servicemen and women, have made the call and made the decision to switch to a humana
