Average Cost of Medicare Advantage Plans by State in 2022

Unlike Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B), the price of Medicare Advantage plans varies depending on where you live. Thus, the average cost of Medicare Advantage is different in each state. Check the chart below for the average monthly premium and prescription drug deductible of Medicare Advantage plans in your state.

What is the Average Cost of Medicare Advantage Plans?

Private insurance companies offer Medicare Advantage plans to those eligible for Medicare. Plan availability depends on your county of residence and the carriers determine the costs for the plans. There are even some plans that partially or fully pay your Part B premium.

To enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you must first sign up for Original Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans are also known as Part C and are commonly called replacement plans because they stand in for Original Medicare.

With a Medicare Advantage plan, you will still be responsible for applicable premiums for Medicare Parts A and B. Thus, a Medicare Advantage plan with a zero-dollar premium does not mean your Medicare is free.

When enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan, there are multiple considerations you must make. When it comes to price, you will want to take into account the monthly premium as well as the deductible you must reach for prescription drug coverage.

However, not all Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. Though, if yours does, you must meet the deductible for the coverage to kick in. So, for an affordable plan, look beyond the price of the premium and see if the deductibles are also reasonable.

The average monthly premium for Medicare Advantage plans ranges from $38 to $105 across the 49 states where they are available. Prescription drug deductibles for Medicare Advantage plans range from $182 to $448.

As you can see, there is a fairly broad range for each. Additionally, Medicare Advantage plans are not available in Alaska.
