Paying For Services
Medicare Part D, C and Medigap
Medicare Advantage or "Medicare Part C"
Medicare Advantage, (sometimes called Medicare Part C, ) is another healthcare coverage choice you have as part of Medicare. These plans are offered by private companies approved by Medicare, and provide all of your Part A and B coverage except for hospice care. However, original Medicare will provide hospice care even if you are in a Medicare Advantage Plan.
Medicare Part D -: Medicare's Prescription Drug Coverage
To get Medicare's prescription drug coverage, you must join a plan run by an insurance company or other private company approved by Medicare. Each plan varies in cost and the drugs covered.
Medigap - Medicare's Supplemental Coverage
Medigap policies are sold by private insurance companies. They help pay for some of the healthcare costs ("gaps") that Original Medicare doesn't cover, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
