Medicare is a health insurance provided to eligible citizens of the United States by the federal government. In order to be eligible for Medicare, citizens must be 65 or older. Original Medicare which is administered directly by the federal government (and is the way most people get their Medicare) has two parts: PART A (hospital insurance) and PART B (medical insurance). Medicare PART C is the portion of Medicare policy that allows private health insurance companies to provide Medicare benefits, also known as Medicare Advantage. Medicare approves all third-party companies offering PART C plans.
Medicare PART D (outpatient Prescription Drug Insurance) provides outpatient drug coverage. PART D is provided only through private insurance companies that have contracts with the government – it is not provided directly by the government like Original Medicare is. PART D is available to all Medicare recipients, plans are offered at the time of enrollment. Those who initially decline PART D coverage must pay a late enrollment fee in order to sign up for drug coverage at a later date. In order to enroll in PART D, you must already be enrolled in Medicare PART A or B.
Medigap – Medigap is a Medicare supplement insurance sold by private companies and can help pay
some of the health care costs that original Medicare doesn’t cover, like copayments, coinsurance and
deductibles. Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered healthcare costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.
