Medicare Part A, B, C & D – What does it all mean?

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federally-funded health insurance system for United
States citizens 65 years of age and older or other citizens with
qualifying medical disabilities or medical conditions. In 2009, it
provided coverage for over 45 million people.

Medicare is comprised of 4 parts:
Medicare Part A
Medicare Part B
Medicare Part C
Medicare Part D

Medicare Part A and Part B, also known as Original Medicare, provide coverage for inpatient and
outpatient expenses, respectively.

Medicare Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is provided by private insurers and guarantees at
least the same coverage as Parts A and B, by law, but also often offers additional benefits and lower premiums and co-pays.

Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage, also provided by private insurers.
