Exploring Your Medicare Options
Original Medicare only provides basic coverage, there will be gaps in coverage and you will be responsible for a portion of your health care costs. This is why many people enroll in additional coverage that help pay for costs and benefits not covered by Original Medicare.
Coverage options to consider:
There are several ways to get health and prescription drug coverage.
- Medicare Advantage - provided by private health plans approved by Medicare. These plans combine Part A and Part B, and usually Part D (prescription drug coverage). Medicare Advantage plans may provide coverage and benefits beyond those covered by Original Medicare, such as an annual physical, dental and fitness allowances, and health and safety items. This type of plan is also known as Part C.
- Medicare Supplement (Medigap) - provided by private health insurance companies. These plans help to cover Part A and Part B cost-sharing amounts, such as deductibles and coinsurance, for Original Medicare covered services. Separate prescription drug coverage must be purchased.
