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.
