What is Medicare?
Medicare is a federal insurance program geared towards those 65 and older, suffering from End-Stage Renal Disease, or receiving disability insurance. If you fall into any of these categories, you are often automatically applied to Original Medicare (Parts A and B). This plan’s coverage options include:
- Short-Term Hospital, Urgent, and Nursing Facility Care Under Part A
- Checkups, Preventative Services, Outpatient Care, and Medical Supplies Under Part B
What is Medicare Advantage?
Medicare Advantage, or Part C, is distinct from Original Medicare and is offered by private insurance companies. This means that you have the option to opt for this coverage on top of Original Medicare. An Advantage plan includes (but is not limited to):
- All of the Benefits of Original Medicare
- Long-Term and Custodial Care Not Available Under Original Medicare
- Dental, Vision, and Hearing Care
Prescription drugs are often covered under Part C plans. Because Medicare Advantage is offered privately, this availability may change depending on your location. If your plan does not cover prescriptions, you also have the option to add a Part D drug coverage plan.
