MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT INSURANCE
Offered by private insurance companies, Medicare supplement plans work with Original Medicare to pay some of the costs not covered by Original Medicare such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles.
MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLANS
When you choose a Medicare Advantage plan, the plan will provide your Original Medicare; or Part A and Part B coverage; plus in many cases your Part D or prescription drug coverage. Referred to as "Part C"; Some Medicare Advantage Plans also include benefits such as dental, vision and hearing coverage.
PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLANS
Also knows as "Part D", Prescription drug coverage is not included in Original Medicare. Part D coverage can be obtained in some cases as a stand-alone policy, or as part of a Medicare Advantage Plan
