Learn More About Medicare
Medicare is a federal 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 Insurance 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 federal 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 federal government.
It is optional to add a Part D plan to Original Medicare Part A and B, Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) plans, or Part C - Medicare Advantage plans (however many Medicare Advantage plans already include Part D coverage).
What are Medicare Supplement Insurance plans (Medigap)?
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans cover costs not included in Original Medicare Part A and Part B, including deductibles, copays, and coinsurance. Medicare Supplement Insurance 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 federal government.
