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.

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.
