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