What are the different parts of Medicare?

- Parts A and B are often referred to as "Original Medicare". Part A helps pay for hospital claims (which makes Part A also known as "Hospital Insurance"), and most people have paid for their Part A premiums through payroll taxes while in the workforce. Part B ("Medical Insurance") helps you to pay for things like doctor visits, preventive screenings and durable medical equipment. The government sets the monthly premium for Part B. Your Part B premium can vary based upon your income.

- Part C plans, also known as Medicare Advantage plans, are a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide you with all your Part A and Part B benefits. Part C plans are an alternative to Original Medicare. Along with covering doctors and hospitals, many Part C plans also include coverage for prescription drugs.

- Part D plans are Medicare-approved private plans that help people who have Parts A and B to pay for prescription drugs. Part D plans are available through private insurance companies.
