BALTIMORE, MD — On October 1, 2023, Johns Hopkins Health Plans introduced Johns Hopkins Advantage MD Select (HMO), a new Medicare Advantage plan, to Medicare-beneficiaries in Arlington County, City of Fairfax and City of Falls Church in Virginia.

A Medicare Advantage plan is an alternative to Original Medicare offered by a Medicare-approved private insurance company. These plans provide the same health coverage as Medicare Part A and B and often include Part D (prescription drug coverage). Many Medicare Advantage plans also may offer additional benefits such as dental, vision, and fitness.
“Johns Hopkins Health Plans offers access to world-renowned quality of care, with a local focus and a national presence,” said Dr. Marketa Wills, Johns Hopkins Health Plans’ chief medical officer. “With an experienced team of top administrators, we are focused on serving as exceptional advocates for our members, especially with of our intimate connection to Johns Hopkins Medicine and its research-backed approaches to both individual care and population health.”
Over half of Medicare-eligible individuals chose to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan in 2022. The introduction of Johns Hopkins Advantage MD Select to the Virginia market provides more options to Medicare beneficiaries in the Northern Virginia service area.
