Medicare is funded by the government for those who are 65 years and older. Medicare consists of Part A, or hospital insurance, and Part B, or medical insurance. Medicare Part C is a Medicare Advantage Plan which combines Part A and Part B and in some cases Part D. Medicare Part C is managed by insurance companies which are Medicare-approved. These plans cover the necessary medical services, and have co-payments, coinsurance, and deductibles which vary. Medicare Part D provides assistance in covering prescription drugs and can prevent high costs in the future. Like Medicare Part C, the coverage depends on the plan.

Key areas to consider when choosing the appropriate Medicare plan are out of pocket costs, whether the plan allows the beneficiary to choose in network or out of network doctors, hospital expenses, co-insurance, the amount of skilled nursing and in-home recovery coverage the plan offers, as well as facility co-insurance. PPO plans offer the freedom to choose out-of-network doctors and specialists while in most cases HMO plans do not. However, the copay or deductible may be higher if the beneficiary chooses an out-of-network doctor under a PPO plan.
