Do You Know What Plans You Need?

Generally, different Medicare plans help cover specific needs. You may be familiar with the four types of Medicare (A, B, C, & D), but do you know which covers which of your needs?

If you are unaware of the nuances of how these four plans interact, combine, or preclude one another, we recommend you work with a Medicare professional to help you navigate the often complicated path of covering all your health needs with the assortment of plans. You can request a consultation below.

Overview of Medicare Parts A, B, C, & D

Part A – Hospital insurance, which covers most medically necessary hospital, skilled nursing facility, home health, and Hospice care.

Part B – Medical insurance, which covers most medically necessary doctor services, preventative care, durable medical equipment, hospital outpatient services, laboratory diagnostic testing, X-rays, mental healthcare, and some ambulance services.

Part C – Also called Medicare Advantage Plans, Part C covers what Parts A and B cover, only it is through private health insurance providers that follow rules set by Medicare. They often include a prescription plan (Part D) within it.

Part D – Outpatient prescription drug insurance, which covers medically necessary outpatient drug costs. This is handled by private providers that contract with the government.
