Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C)

What Can You Get?

Medicare Advantage Plans cover the same benefits as Original Medicare, and often more. These plans have a contract with Medicare to provide at least the same level of medical and doctor coverage and often include drug coverage and additional benefits like dental & vision benefits, fitness programs, and more.

These health plans cover all the benefits of Medicare Part A, including hospital stays, skilled nursing care and home health care, but not hospice care (which is still covered by your Part A benefit). These plans also cover all the benefits of Medicare Part B, including doctor visits, outpatient care, screenings, shots and lab tests.

Many Medicare Advantage Plans also include Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage.
