Medicare is divided into four main parts: A, B, C, and D. The first two parts, A and B, are sometimes called “Original Medicare.” Part C, also known as “Medicare Advantage” is a private insurance plan that provides similar benefits as Original Medicare. The final piece of Medicare, Part D, is a prescription drug plan.
What does Medicare Supplement insurance cover?
Policies help pay for Medicare Part A & B deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance. Some policies also include coverage for certain health services not covered by Medicare.
