Breaking Down Original Medicare, Part D, and Medicare Advantage

Original Medicare

Administered by the federal government. "Original Medicare" is made up of Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance). Those with Original Medicare may opt to add additional prescription drug coverage (Part D). 

Part D

Prescription drug coverage, or Part D, is provided by private insurance companies and is considered supplemental to Original Medicare. There are many different drug plans to choose from, and each has its own list of covered prescriptions (also known as a formulary). Drug plans place drugs into "tiers" that determine how much you will pay.

Medicare Advantage or Part C

Medicare beneficiaries may also choose Plan C or Medicare Advantage. Offered by private insurance companies, a Medicare Advantage plan combines the benefits of Parts A, B and often Part D into one health plan. It may also offer additional benefits such as dental and vision coverage.
