Medicare Part C:Medicare Advantage Plans
What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?
A Medicare Advantage Plan is also known as Medicare Part C and is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide you with all your Original Part A and Part B benefits.
Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans.
If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, Medicare services are covered through the Medicare Advantage plan and aren’t paid for under Original Medicare.
In addition to covering your hospital and medical services, like Original Medicare Part A & Part B, Medicare Advantage plans can sometimes include the following benefits:
- Dental coverage for dentures and routine services
- Vision coverage for eyeglasses, contact lenses, and routine services
- Gym memberships
- Over-the-counter allowances which can be used for vitamins, etc.
- Transportation services
- Food cards to use at your local grocery store
- And much more!
