Medicare Cost Plan

A Medicare Cost Plan is a kind of HMO that is available in some areas. It is very similar to Medicare Advantage.

In a Medicare Cost Plan, if you see a doctor who is not in the plan's network without getting a referral, any covered services you receive will be paid for under Original Medicare. That means you would have to pay Medicare deductibles and co-insurance.
