Baseline Coverage for Eligible People
What is sometimes called "Original Medicare" refers to the coverage under the first two parts of the Medicare law:
Part A- Covers hospital stays, skilled nursing, hospice and other facility-related services.
Part B- Doctors visits, tests, therapy, and other services not covered by Part A you think of as major medical benefits
The government processes and pays claims for those with Part A and B coverage. There are deductibles and customers pay 20% of medical costs. There is no out-of-pocket limit on this 20% share.
Part D Prescription Drug Coverage
Getting qualified prescription drug coverage
Part D of the Medicare Law was passed in recognition of the increasing importance of prescription medications as compared to 1964 when the original law was passed.
If you choose Original Medicare as your coverage method, you must obtain Part D qualifying prescription drug coverage when your Part B becomes active. These plans meet federal standards, but are sold by insurance companies.
Medicare Advantage Plans
All-In-One Medicare Coverage
Part C of the Medicare law authorized insurance companies to offer qualified health insurance plans that cover all major medical be benefits covered under Parts A, B and D. These plans are like plans for under-65 people in that there are copays and coinsurance costs, but also a cap on the member's out-of-pocket expenses for covered items each year.
