We know that choosing the right Medicare plan can feel overwhelming. Understanding your coverage options and how they affect your health is important, and we encourage you to explore all of your Medicare coverage options, including Medicare Advantage.
To understand which plans offer you the benefits and prescription coverage you need, we recommend you speak with an independent, licensed agent. That agent can review your current plan with you as well as discuss other options that may be beneficial. If you do not have a licensed agent, The South Bend Clinic partners with the Integrity Medicare Helpline and HealthMarkets Insurance Agency to assist you!

All-in-one plans, like Medicare Advantage, may help simplify the complexity around Medicare and provide more comprehensive and cost-effective benefits. The South Bend Clinic participates in the following Medicare Advantage plans:
- United Healthcare
Prescription Drug Plans
Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer coverage for things that aren’t covered by Original Medicare, like vision, hearing, dental and wellness programs (like gym memberships). Plans can also include a broader range “extra benefits” than they have in the past, including services like transportation to doctor visits, over-the-counter drugs, adult day-care services and other health and care tools and resources needed to support your well-being beyond our office walls.
