Learn more about the HMO plan

You must be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B before you can enroll in an HMO plan. You also have to live in the plan's service area. By enrolling in a Medicare HMO, you consent to receive services only in the plan's network, excluding emergencies. Some HMO plans have a POST (point of service) option where you can go out of the network for certain services, but it usually costs less if you go to a network provider. If you don't like the restriction of an HMO, you may want to choose a more flexible Medicare PPO plan. As long as you don't have end-stage renal failure, you can enroll in an HMO plan.

If you need prescription drugs, HMO plans often include Medicare Part D drug coverage. You should always make sure your medications are included in the plan before enrolling. You can find which drugs are included in the plan's drug formulary.
