A Medicare Advantage (MA) plan is another way for individuals to get Medicare Part A and Part B coverage. MA plans are sometimes referred to as "Part C" coverage.

These plans are offered by Medicare-approved private companies. The companies, often insurance companies or health care entities, must follow rules set out by Medicare (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services).

Individuals enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan get most of their Part A and Part B coverage from the Medicare Advantage Plan, not Original Medicare. These plans include Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). The vast majority today include Medicare drug coverage (Part D).

In addition, a growing number of MA plans today provide additional benefits. These can include fitness programs (gym memberships or discounts). The majority today also offer some vision, hearing, and dental services.

Some MA plans offer coverage for services like transportation to doctor visit. They may offer some benefit for over-the-counter drugs, and services that promote health and wellness.
