Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) covers most, but not all, of the health care costs you may face. Medigap fills in the gaps in coverage for Original Medicare policies, Part A and Part B, by paying the hospitals directly for cost-sharing expenses such as coinsurance, deductibles, and copayments for covered services you receive..
Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage Plans), sold by private companies but regulated by the federal government, covers everything that Original does (Parts A and B together), typically covering extras benefits like prescription drugs, dental and vision benefits, hearing aids and more.
Medicare Part D (Prescription Drugs), sold by private companies but regulated by the federal government, covers a variety of drug plans, each covering its own set of drugs. The cost depends on the types of drugs you need and whether your pharmacy participates in your plan’s network
Frequently Asked Questions
What does Original Medicare not cover?
Original Medicare does not cover most regular or routine dental, vision or hearing services; long-term (custodial) care; cosmetic surgery; routine acupuncture; or routine foot care. And if you need prescription drugs, you’ll need to add Medicare Part D as a standalone plan. Medicare Advantage typically covers many of these services — plus extras, like gym memberships and transportation.
This sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch?
Because Medicare Advantage plans are subsidized by the federal government, many of these private health plans can offer competitive benefits without any extra cost to you. You’ll continue paying your Part B premium, and your benefits will come from your private health plan. There’s no “catch.” But some plans have networks, unlike Original Medicare, which may limit the providers you can see.
How do I join a Medicare Advantage plan?
Once you’re enrolled in Part A and Part B, you can join a Medicare Advantage plan. You can do this when you’re first eligible for Medicare at age 65. Or you can switch to a private plan during open enrollment in the fall. Compare plans online using our simple, straightforward process. Enrollment is fast and convenient.
