Part C

Part C: Medicare Advantage plans

Part C covers all the benefits of Part A and Part B plus additional benefits and services. The cost of a Part C plan varies depending on the plan.

What’s covered under Part C?

Part C covers all the benefits of Original Medicare (Part A and Part B), plus additional benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover and the option to include prescription drug (Part D) coverage. Many people choose to add Part C because it provides more complete coverage than just Original Medicare.

  • All the benefits of Original Medicare (Part A and Part B)
  • Routine eye exams
  • Routine hearing exams
  • Prescription drug coverage (available with many, but not all, Part C plans)

What does Part C cost?
