hospital beds, and other equipment)• Many preventive services (like screenings, shots or vaccines,
and yearly “Wellness” visits)
Medicare Advantage is an "all in one" alternative to Original Medicare (Part A and Part B only). These "bundled" plans, sometimes called “Part C", include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D.
Most plans offer extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn't cover-like Vision, Hearing, Dental, and more.
Part D (Drug coverage)
Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs (including many
recommended shots or vaccines). Plans that offer Medicare drug coverage (Part D) are run by
private insurance companies that follow rules set by Medicare.
