Medicare Advantage

What is a Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage (also known as “Part C”) is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare. These plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D. Plans may offer some extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.

  • Medicare Advantage is a Medicare-approved plan from a private company that offers an alternative to Original Medicare for your health and drug coverage. These “bundled” plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D.

  • In most cases, you can only use doctors who are in the plan’s network.

  • In many cases, you may need to get approval from your plan before it covers certain drugs or services.

  • Plans may have lower out-of-pocket costs than Original Medicare.

  • Plans may offer some extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover—like vision, hearing, and dental services.
