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.
