MHBP Standard Option with Medicare and Aetna Medicare Advantage for MHBP Standard Option – benefit comparison
The MHBP Standard Option column shows benefits when Medicare Parts A and B are your primary coverage. MHBP waives your calendar year deductible and most copayments and coinsurance, (except for prescription drugs), and pays Medicare’s deductible and coinsurance for services covered by both Medicare and MHBP. Do not rely on this chart alone. All benefits are fully described in the official Plan Brochure.
