Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans
Health plans also known as “Medigap Plans” are health insurance policies sold by private insurance carriers. These plans are designed to do exactly what the name says. Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans come in and “supplement”, or fill in the gaps in Original Medicare.
Medicare Advantage Insurance Plans
Health plans run by private insurance companies that are approved by Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans must include all of the benefits and services covered under Medicare Part A (Hospital) and Medicare Part B (Medical).
Dental, Vision & Hearing Insurance Plans
Supplemental benefits offered by private insurance companies to assist with the cost of dental, vision and hearing. Medicare pays for a range of health care benefits–but routine teeth cleaning, vision and hearing tests, eyeglass and hearing aid fittings are not covered.
Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans
Health plans also known as “PDP’s” are offered to anyone with Medicare Part A or Medicare Part B. Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plans can help cover prescription drug costs. They are offered through private insurance companies that have been approved by Medicare.
