Medicare Plans Accepted
Discover Medicare Insurance Plans accepted at Oak Street Health centers and find primary care doctors accepting Medicare near you. This list of accepted Medicare insurance plans changes regularly. Before your appointment, please confirm with your insurance company that this location accepts your insurance.
Oak Street Health accepts Original Medicare Part A and Part B plans. Also known as traditional Medicare, Original Medicare is a fee-for-service plan, with Medicare paying a portion of the bill for Medicare covered services. All of our locations accept Part B plans, though some require both Part A and Part B.
Oak Street Health accepts all Medicare Supplement plans, also known as MediGap plans. Supplement and “Gap” plans may help with costs that Original Medicare does not cover.
Oak Street Health accepts many Medicare Advantage plans offered by private insurance companies. Sometimes referred to as Part C or MA Plans, these plans provide additional coverage beyond Original Medicare and Medicare Supplement plans. Medicare Advantage plans set maximums for the amount you pay each year for covered services, protecting you from higher than expected costs.
