Medicare Part C, or Medicare Advantage, plans combine multiple Medicare elements into a single package. Typically, Medicare beneficiaries have a Medicare Part A plan for inpatient needs and a Medicare Part B plan for outpatient needs. Prescription and supplemental plans are optional.

While Medicare parts A and B can be provided directly by Medicare, Medicare Part D’s prescription plans are offered through private plans. Medicare Advantage is a hybrid Medicare product offered by private plans. It combines Medicare parts A and B, plus other elements like prescription coverage, dental, vision, and more.

Medicare Part D is Medicare’s prescription medication plan. Administered by private insurance companies, this optional Medicare program charges a monthly premium in return for savings on prescription medications.

Plans use a formulary — or list of medications the plan covers — that usually include at least two medications for each drug category. For example, there would be two medication choices for your high blood pressure or your diabetes. Formularies include both generic and brand name medications.

If your prescription is not on the formulary, you could ask for an exception, or see if you can try and alternative medication. Formulary lists are updated by Medicare plans every year, and you will save the most money on your prescription medications by using drugs from your plan’s formulary.
