Medicare is a government health insurance program for people who are 65 or older. Younger people with certain disabilities may also qualify. Medicare is divided into“parts”, which cover specific services.

  • Part A - Hospital Insurance
  • Part B - Medical Insurance & Doctor Visits
  • Part C - Medicare Advantage
  • Part D - Prescription Drug Coverage
  • Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap)

 

What is Medicare Part A - Hospital Insurance?

Medicare Part A is a health insurance program administered by the federal government which primarily covers inpatient hospital care, but also covers skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and home health care costs. Part A and Part B are also known as “Original Medicare”.

What is Medicare Part B - Medical Insurance & Doctors Visits?

Medicare Part B is a health insurance program administered by the federal government which primarily covers non-hospital medical needs including doctor services, outpatient care, lab work, ambulance, and medical equipment costs. Part A and Part B are also known as “Original Medicare”.

What is Medicare Part C - Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Part C is also known as Medicare Advantage or MA plans, which “bundles” Original Medicare Part A and Part B into one health insurance plan. Original Medicare is a health insurance program administered by the federal government, but Medicare Advantage plans are offered by health insurance companies approved by the government.

Most Medicare Advantage plans also bundle Part D - prescription drug coverage.

Medicare Advantage can also include extra services not included in Part A and Part B, such as vision, hearing, dental, and wellness programs.

What is Medicare Part D - Prescription Drug Coverage?

Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage, which can be combined with other Medicare health insurance. Part D plans are offered by health insurance companies which are approved by the government.

It is optional to add a Part D plan to Original Medicare Part A and B, Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans, or Part C - Medicare Advantage plans (however many Medicare Advantage plans already include Part D coverage).

What are Medicare Supplement plans (Medigap)?

Medicare Supplement Plans cover costs not included in Original Medicare Part A and Part B, including deductibles, copays, and coinsurance. Medicare Supplement Plans are also known as Medigap, because they cover the “gaps” in Part A and B. Although Original Medicare is administered by the federal government, Medigap plans are offered by health insurance companies approved by the government.
