PART C Plans
Medicare PART C plans are also know as Medicare Advantage plans. When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan Medicare Parts A&B remain active but all benefits and claims are managed by an insurance company.
There are many different types of plans. There are Special Needs Plans for which you must meet certain eligibility criteria. Of these plans there are plans for people with certain chronic conditions as well as plans for people who are Medicaid eligible in their state.
In general, when you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, the plan will provide all of your Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage. Medicare Advantage Plans may offer extra coverage, such as vision, hearing, dental, and/or health and wellness programs
