Medicare has 4 basic parts that, together, help with health care costs. Each part provides coverage for different types of health care services.

Medicare Part A and Part B are often referred to as "original" Medicare. Medicare Part C is called Medicare Advantage and combines hospital and medical insurance and sometimes prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage.

Keep in mind that original Medicare was not designed to cover all your medical expenses. If you think you'll have many medical expenses in the next year, you may want to get more coverage.
