Medicare Advantage

A type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company contracting with Medicare to provide all Part A (hospital care) and Part B (doctor office visits, preventative screenings and tests) benefits. Most Medicare Advantage Plans also offer prescription drug coverage. If a person is enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through that plan. Their Medicare services aren’t paid for by original Medicare.
