Medicare InformationInsurance can be confusing and difficult to understand. Medicare is no different. Original Medicare consists of Part A, Part B, Part D and most have a Supplement (Medigap) plan in addition to Original Medicare. Original Medicare is the typical Medicare most are familiar with and it is managed by the federal government.
Part C is also known as Medicare Advantage. Part C sounds enticing as it contains similiar benefits as Medicare Parts A, B, and D, however, they can carry hidden risks, especially for people with major health issues. Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans are offered by private insurance companies as an alternative to Original Medicare. It replaces and cancels Original Medicare, if you choose this option.
Before making any changes to your health care, ensure that your medical provider is in network with the insurance plan.
