There are many plans and programs available through MyAARPMedicare that are not included in Original Medicare. Original Medicare (Parts A and B) may not give you everything you need for a healthy lifestyle. Medicare Parts A and B do not cover prescription drugs or dental, eye, or hearing insurance that you consider essential to your health.
There are private insurers that offer additional plans or alternative Medicare plans that can help you add the additional coverage you need. You can choose from a variety of rates on the MyAARPMedicare portal to find the one that is right for you and your family.
List Of Medicare Plans By AARP
Medicare is available in different plans. Therefore, you need to do thorough research before choosing a plan. Below are the details of the different MyAARPMedicare plans:
- Health insurance plans (Part C)
- Supplementary medical insurance
- Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D)
- Special Needs Plans (PSP)
There are some differences between the previous plans. Medicare Advantage plans are specifically designed to provide a single plan that covers multiple benefits offered by multiple Medicare A, B, and D plans, with additional benefits at no additional cost.
The Medicare Supplement Insurance Program (Medicare Parts A and B) covers health costs that are not covered by Original Medicare. These plans are often called Medigap plans.
Medicare prescription drug plans (Part D) help pay for prescription drugs. Medicare-approved private insurers offer Part D plans. This plan can help you save money on your prescription drugs and give you peace of mind.
Special Needs Plans (SNPs) are a unique type of Medicare Advantage plan offered by private insurers to specially qualified individuals. All SNPs include prescription drug coverage, but the plan’s availability depends on where you live.
