Know Your Medicare ABC’s & Part D

Medicare is divided into ‘parts,’ covering different types of health benefits. These are commonly referred to as Medicare Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D.

Part A is for Hospital Care

Part A helps cover basic hospitalization for no monthly premium.

Part B is for Doctor Visits

Part B helps cover medical services such as visits to a doctor’s office, outpatient care and some prescription drugs.

Part C is a Medicare Advantage Plan

Part C is a special kind of Medicare option called a Medicare Advantage plan. These plans provide Part A and Part B benefits plus more, like eyewear and dental allowances.

Part D is for Prescription Drug Coverage

This optional plan can help lower your prescription drug costs. You need to have Part A and Part B to be eligible for Part D.

NOTE: If you did not enroll in Part D when you first become eligible, or do not have coverage as good as Medicare’s, you may have to pay a penalty when you join now. Get details.

Important to know!

Medicare allows you to be a member of only one Medicare Advantage plan at a time. MVP offers the convenience of both medical coverage and Part D coverage together in one plan! If you join a Medicare Advantage HMO-POS or PPO plan and later choose a Part D drug plan from another insurance or pharmacy company, Medicare will:

  1. Enroll you in that drug plan for your Part D drug coverage,
  2. Automatically disenroll you out of your current Medicare Advantage plan, and
  3. Allow you to keep Medicare (Parts A and B) for your medical coverage for the remainder of the year, along with the other drug plan you chose.
