Q. Can I still see my current doctor?
The Short Answer
If you purchase a Medicare supplement insurance plan, you can see your doctor if they accept Medicare patients. If you purchase a Medicare Advantage plan, you can see only the doctors in the plan’s network. Your current doctor may be in the plan’s network.
If a doctor does not accept assignment from Medicare, they can bill you an additional amount beyond what Medicare pays them. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, you can only go to your doctor if your doctor is in the plan’s network.
