The Parts Of Medicare

Medicare has 5 parts, with the primary ones being Parts A & B. Medicare Part A covers hospitalization, skilled nursing facility, and home health care.  Medicare Part B covers doctors and outpatient treatment. Medicare A & B have “Gaps,” which are potentially high out of pocket costs as well as other health related items that aren’t covered. The other 3 parts of Medicare are provided by private insurers and help fill the gaps by providing additional coverage & benefits.

The Other 3 Parts Of Medicare

  • Medicare Advantage – Medicare Advantage, also known as “Part C,” is Private Medicare Insurance. With Medicare, you have the choice of being covered directly through the government or a private insurer. Medicare Advantage includes additional coverage not provided with Original Medicare.
  • Medicare Supplements – Medicare Supplements, also known as Medigap, are insurance plans that supplement Medicare A & B. They are offered by private insurers and help cover your out of pocket medical costs.
  • Part D – Medicare Part D is prescription coverage provided by private insurers.
