2. Once I've chosen the Allsup Medicare Advisor, what happens?
We start by identifying your specific needs and preferences for a Medicare plan, including which doctors you visit, prescription drugs you take, health conditions you may have and more.
Then, we will research all the Medicare plans available to you in your local area, focusing on those most likely to meet your needs. We'll create a detailed report highlighting those plans and comparing coverage, premiums, out-of-pocket costs and even the donut hole on drug coverage. Your Allsup Medicare specialist will review your customized report with you and help you enroll in the plan of your choice.
More information about the report and more detailed information on the Allsup Medicare Advisor process is also available online.
No, but we can help you understand which types of plans might be right for you based on your budget or types of illnesses you might have. Some people prefer Medicare Advantage plans that cover medical, dental and drug needs under one plan. Others prefer to choose different plans from different providers for medical and drug coverage. The decision is yours - but we help you make the choice that works best for you.

4. What if I have certain doctors I want to continue to see?
An Allsup Medicare Advisor specialist will review all the available plans in your area with your preferences in mind, including which doctors you see. If we can't find a plan that includes your doctor, we make every attempt to find acceptable alternatives and work with you to identify and resolve any particular coverage requirements you may have.
5. Is it necessary to review my Medicare plan every year?
Medicare plan prices, coverage and availability could change every year. So, a plan that was relatively inexpensive this year may be more expensive next year. Or your health may change and that means making sure you have a plan that meets your new needs for medical and drug coverage.
6. What if my circumstances change? For example, what happens if I move?
If you experience certain changes, you should have your Medicare options re-evaluated. Events that can affect your Medicare coverage include:
- Moving outside your plan's coverage area
- Increasing your amount of travel away from home
- Moving into or out of a long-term-care facility
- Becoming eligible for low-income subsidy
