Medicare Part C

Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage)

Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is an all-in-one alternative to Original Medicare. In addition to the costs covered by Part A (hospital insurance), Part B (medical insurance), and Part D (prescription drug coverage), Medicare Part C often includes extra benefits, like vision, dental, hearing, and fitness services.

Medicare Part C is provided by private insurance companies, and in many instances for no additional cost beyond your Part B premium. Enrollment in Part C is completely optional and serves as a bundled alternative to Part A, Part B, and Part D (assuming your Advantage plan includes prescription drug coverage).

We offer 2022 preferred pharmacy pricing on most major Medicare Part C plans, which could mean co-pays as low as $0.* Review our preferred Part C plans.
