The Two Ways To Have Medicare

There are 2 ways to have Medicare; Original Medicare A & B and Medicare Part C. With Original Medicare, your benefits are provided directly from the federal government. Part C (Medicare Advantage) is when you get your Medicare through a private insurer 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.

Medicare Part C - Medicare Advantage

Medicare Part C includes Part A Hospitalization and Part B Outpatient benefits. It may also include extra benefits such as Part D prescription, medical cost protection, dental, & vision benefits.

Medicare Part C Advantage Plans are "bundled" and include all benefits in one plan.
