California Medicare plans are similar to those in other states, especially Californiaâ€™s Supplemental Medicare plans, or Medigap plans. Under Original Medicare, there are many gaps left in coverage and those who are faced with an accident or unforeseen illness may be left without coverage.
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.
