Eligibility for Medicare Advantage Plan

If you are eligible for Medicare and live in a county where Medicare Advantage plans are offered, you should have the option of an Advantage plan. You must be enrolled in both Part A and Part B before you can purchase an Advantage plan. You cannot drop Part B either, or you will lose your Advantage plan.
