About Medicare in PA
As you might be aware, Medicare is a federal government program that offers medical coverage to those who are 65 and over or those with specific disabilities. Seniors citizens are eligible for the following coverage:
Part A – Hospital Stays
Part B – Medical related services
Part C – Also known as “Medicare Advantage”
This is private insurance that takes over for Medicare. It combines the functions of A and B with prescription drug coverage into one plan. If a person elects Medicare Advantage they are opting to use this instead of original medicare. It is also different from a supplement plan because those are designed to supplement Medicare. Advantage plans take over for Medicare. They come in the form of HMO’s, PPO’s and Private Fee for Service.
