Choosing a Medicare Advantage program that is right for you can be difficult due to the wide range of things that they cover—or don’t.  Plans are expanding benefits in 35 out of 41 categories this year, according to a study done by actuarial consultant Milliman.  Vision coverage still ranks as the most common supplemental benefit, with 97% of Advantage plans offering it in 2022, followed closely by hearing (94%), fitness (94%) and dental care (91%).  However, less common benefits like acupuncture and coverage for bathroom safety devices with the number of plans featuring these increasing by 70% and 32%, respectively (Kiplinger’s Retirement Report May 2022, page 15).
