Medicare Advantage plans insured through UnitedHealthcare are offered to residents of Erickson Retirement Communities. These plans include benefits and services in addition to those covered under Original Medicare. Residents in some areas have several plans from which to choose. Some of these plans include an integrated Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit.

Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans have a defined network of contracted local physicians and hospitals to provide member care. Generally, members must use these care providers to receive benefits for covered services, except in emergencies.
Point of Service (HMO-POS) plans include all the features of HMO plans plus the ability to go outside the contracted network for certain health care services - typically at a higher cost. Many POS plans do not require referrals for specialty care.
Plans are insured through UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company or one of its affiliated companies, a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in the plan depends on the plan's contract renewal with Medicare.
