Florida Medicare Advantage Plans
Florida Medicare Part C
We often refer to Medicare Parts A and B as "Original Medicare." Medicare Part C is often called "Medicare Advantage." These are plans administered by private health care companies, and often cover services that Original Medicare Does NOT. Many Medicare Advantage plans have a $0 monthly plan premium, and some may pay a portion of the Part B premium. Medicare part C plans sometimes also cover prescription drugs as well.
What Does Medicare Part C Cover?
These plans replace Part A and Part B, so they cover both hospital, and primary care. In addition, some of the more popular features may have vision, hearing, and dental that are not covered by Original Medicare. Some Part C plans will pay part of the Part B premium. Part B Premium give-back is not available with all plans. Availability varies by carrier and location. Actual Part B premium reduction varies. Many plans feature
prescription drug benefits, and we call those MAPD Plans.
Does Medicare Part C Cover Dental?
Usually, yes. Many part C plans will cover routine dental, that is not covered by Original Medicare. Medicare Part C dental coverage will vary from county to county, and from plan to plan. Please see Florida Medicare Dental Plans.
Medicare Part C Eligibility Requirements
To be eligible for Medicare Part C, you must already be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B.
