The biggest complaint about Medicare Advantage plans is their high out-of-pocket costs. These costs can come from the beneficiary's monthly premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. In some circumstances, a Medicare Advantage plan helps people save money and get more coverage. Doctors can have a variety of reasons for not liking Medicare Advantage plans.
One reason is that these plans tend to have smaller networks of doctors and hospitals than traditional Medicare, which may limit the variety of providers available to patients. This can be frustrating for doctors who want to provide the best possible care to their patients through referrals, but are limited by the plan's limitations.
