Senior Preferred is a Medicare Advantage (MA) Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Plan administered by Gundersen Health Plan.
Gundersen Health Plan, through our contract with the federal government, receives funds to help pay for the health care services members use. Members pay a monthly plan premium and copayments for designated services.
Senior Preferred has several plan options. All plans offer comprehensive medical coverage including worldwide coverage for emergency and urgent care, fixed premiums regardless of your age and additional benefits not found in Original Medicare. Plans are available with or without Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Coverage, allowing you to select the plan benefits and premiums that best match your needs.
For further details about each plan, please visit the home page and select your county of residence.
Enrolling in a Part D Prescription Drug Plan is optional, however, if you do not elect coverage when you first become eligible for Medicare, and if you do not have Creditable Coverage (a drug plan that is considered to be at least equal to Medicare part D) you could incur premium penalties in the future when you do want to enroll in a plan. Enrolling in a Senior Preferred plan that includes prescription drug coverage helps to simplify your Medicare by putting your healthcare and prescription coverage into one plan.
When you enroll in a Senior Preferred Medicare Advantage HMO plan, you agree to receive all of your routine or scheduled healthcare services from medical providers that are in the Senior Preferred provider network. Medicare contracts with Senior Preferred to provide your Medicare Part A & B benefits, Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Coverage if you choose it, as well as supplemental benefits all in one comprehensive plan.
