Part C, or Medicare Advantage
Medicare Advantage plans can also include Part D, or prescription coverage, which you can read about here. Part C is available to all Medicare beneficiaries living within a plan’s service area who have Medicare Parts A & B and who do not have end-stage renal disease.
Medicare Advantage plans, like Geisinger Gold, were created to give Medicare beneficiaries a new way of receiving benefits — offering many choices to find the right fit for your budget and lifestyle.
What does Medicare Part C cover?
Medicare Part C, or Medicare Advantage, will cover all services that would normally be provided through Original Medicare, and can offer additional benefits such:
- Dental, preventive and some non-Medicare-covered comprehensive
- Routine vision, including coverage for eyewear and/or contact lenses
- Routine hearing and hearing aids
- Medicare Parts A and B
- Routine dental
- Routine vision
- Hearing aids
- Fitness benefits
- Worldwide emergency medical coverage
How much does Medicare Part C cost?
Medicare Advantage plan costs can vary in their premiums, deductibles and copays. The nice thing is, some plan options can offer premiums as low as $0! Be aware that Medicare beneficiaries will need to continue to pay their Part B premium, even if they enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan.
Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO, and HMO SNP plans are offered by Geisinger Health Plan/Geisinger Indemnity Insurance Company, health plans with a Medicare contract. Continued enrollment in Geisinger Gold depends on annual contract renewal.
