What Is Medicare Part C?

Posted by TSS Medicare Helper on Sep 28, 2016 12:00:00 PM

Medicare Part C, often referred to as Medicare Advantage Plans (MA plans), are plans that are offered by private insurance companies that have been approved by Medicare. So, if you join a Medicare Advantage plan, you will still have Medicare, however, you will get your Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from the Medicare Advantage plan and not from Original Medicare. MA plans must provide all of the same coverage that Original Medicare does, but it may also offer some added coverage such as vision, dental, hearing and prescription drug coverage.
