Medicare Part C


Medicare Part C, otherwise known as Medicare Advantage, is an all-in-one alternative to Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). It combines all of the benefits of Parts A and Part B, and, sometimes, Part D (prescription drug) coverage under one plan, and provides additional benefits, including dental, vision, and hearing care and other ancillary benefits.

 

Part C plans are managed by Medicare-approved private insurance companies and must cover medically-necessary services. However, these plans can charge different co-payments, coinsurance fees, and/or deductibles.    


This plan lowers the out-of-pocket costs of Original Medicare. Because it is offered by private companies, its overall costs will vary between location and provider.

 

Once enrolled, the private insurance plan (Medicare Advantage) must cover all of services that Original Medicare covers.
