For many people turning 65, Medicare insurance options can be complex or confusing. While Original Medicare, known as Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance), works like a traditional insurance plan with coinsurance and other out-of-pocket costs, today, Medicare Advantage plans (or Medicare Part C) can provide an “all in one” alternative to Original Medicare with some additional benefits such as vision, hearing, and dental coverage.

If you are turning 65, or if you are already enrolled in a Medicare plan and are considering other coverage options, it is a good idea to explore Medicare Advantage plans to see if you can benefit from different types of coverage or plans.
