Medicare is a national health insurance program administered by the federal government to provide health insurance benefits to seniors 65 or older, some younger people with disabilities, or individuals with end stage renal disease.
Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs (including many recommended shots or vaccines).
Medicare Advantage, often called “Part C” combines the original components of Medicare (Parts A & B) and often includes other benefits such as Part D coverage, hearing, vision, dental & fitness.
In addition, unlike Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans include out of pocket cost limits on what you pay annually for health care services.
Medicare Supplement insurance (also known as MediGap) is additional, optional coverage purchased on top of Original Medicare (not available on top of Medicare Advantage plans).
