What you need to know about Medicare Part C

Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C, is an alternative to Original Medicare, which is often referred to as Part A and Part B. Medicare Advantage plans are provided by private health insurance companies, which have been approved by Medicare.

Companies offering Medicare Advantage plans must provide the same benefits found within Original Medicare. These plans also offer additional coverage, such as dental benefits, routine vision care, prescription drug coverage, and health wellness programs.

With Medicare Advantage, it’s possible to get prescription drug benefits (Medicare Part D) included.

Medicare Advantages allows for both Original Medicare benefits and prescription drug benefits under one plan with Part A, Part B, and Part D coverage.

Types of Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part C comes in a variety of plan options. It’s best to compare the different Medicare Advantage plan options for your state. Some of the most common options available in most locations include:

  • Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans
  • Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans
  • Special Needs Plans (SNPs)
  • Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) plans
  • Private Fee-for-Service (PFFS) plans

Medicare Advantage Eligibility

You’ll become eligible to enroll in a Medicare Part C or Medicare Advantage plan once you’ve enrolled in Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). As long as you live within the service area of the Medicare Advantage plan you choose, and you don’t have end-stage renal disease (ESRD), you’ll be eligible to enroll.

Some exceptions are available for those with end-stage renal disease through Special Needs Plans.
