If you’re familiar with using a PPO plan outside of Medicare Advantage, you can rest easy. A Medicare Advantage PPO plan works much the same way.

Some Medicare Advantage PPO plans even offer benefits that aren’t typically included in non-Medicare PPO plans, such as dental care, eyeglasses, and wellness programs.
