A Medicare Advantage plan, or Medicare Part C, is a Medicare plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide you all your Original Medicare Parts A and B benefits as well as any additional coverage offered through the Medicare Advantage plan.
In addition to providing hospital and medical coverage, this plan also typically includes prescription drug coverage under Part D called Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan (MAPD). Unlike Original Medicare plans, Medicare Advantage plans are required to limit your annual out-of-pocket costs.
