Medicare Part C or Advantage Plan

QUESTION: Is there a difference between Medicare Part C and a Medicare Advantage Plan?

ANSWER: They
refer to the same thing. A Medicare Advantage Plan is often referred to as Medicare Part C. It covers all services under Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B and usually offers additional benefits. You can get a Medicare Part C/Medicare Advantage Plan through private organizations. If you are enrolled in this plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan but are not paid under original Medicare.
