Learn more about the basics of the different Medicare “Parts” and plan types.
Part A primarily covers inpatient hospital care, but also skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and home health care costs.
Part B covers non-hospital medical needs including doctor services, outpatient care, lab work, ambulance, and medical equipment costs.
Medicare Advantage plans “bundle” Original Medicare Part A and Part B, usually Part D, and may include extra benefits, into one insurance health plan.
Beneficiaries may obtain Part D prescription drug coverage through a Medicare Advantage plan or a standalone Prescription Drug Plan.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans help pay for costs not covered by Original Medicare Parts A and B.
