Erickson Advantage® is a health insurance plan that helps Erickson community residents manage their healthcare and maximize their Medicare benefits. The plan offers multiple health insurance plan options designed with the needs of our residents in mind. The plans place a strong emphasis on preventive care and wellness and offer you a range of preventive programs and vaccinations that may help you manage health problems before they occur.

In addition to enhanced benefits compared to original Medicare, members have access to an onsite team of healthcare experts. Of course, it starts with the physicians in the community Medical Center, but members also have access to an on-site Nurse Care Coordinator to help assist with hospitalizations, medical procedures and prescription drug questions. There is also an onsite Member Services Representative to answer benefit and health insurance questions, to help with arranging doctor’s appointments, and to arrange for transportation to medical appointments.

Other plan highlights include: Transportation to approved off-site medical facilities, preventive dental coverage, skilled nursing care without prior hospitalization required, and much more.
