The Two Ways To Have Medicare

There are 2 ways to have Medicare; Original Medicare A & B and Medicare Advantage, also known as Part C. With Original Medicare, your benefits are provided directly by the federal government. Medicare Advantage is when you get your Medicare through a private insurance provider who is contracted with Medicare. The depictions below gives you an overview of how each scenario looks. 

Original Medicare

Includes Hospitalization under Part A and Outpatient care under Part B.

It is recommended to have a Medicare Supplement Policy as secondary insurance.

Add a separate Part D drug plan to cover medications at the pharmacy.

Original Medicare is "un-bundled." You piece together the coverage you want and need.
