What is Medicare Advantage (Medicare Plan C)?
Medicare Advantage, also known as Medicare Plan C, is an alternative to Original Medicare, which includes Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance).
Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private insurance companies and provide all the benefits of Parts A and B, along with additional benefits, such as dental, vision, and wellness programs.
Many Medicare Advantage plans also include prescription drug coverage (Part D).
How is Medicare Advantage Different from Medicare Plan B?
As we mentioned above, Medicare Plan B is part of Original Medicare and covers medically necessary services like doctors’ visits, outpatient care, and preventive services.
In contrast, Medicare Advantage (Plan C) provides all of the benefits of Parts A and B, with added coverage for services not available under Original Medicare.
While Original Medicare allows you to see any doctor or specialist that accepts Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans often have a network of providers you must use to access your benefits.
However, these plans usually include extra perks and benefits, making them an attractive option for many individuals.
