Many seniors want to know the difference between a Medicare Supplement and Medicare Part C. These two plans have different coverage and benefits to fit each individual’s needs and budget.
Medicare Supplement Plans are offered through private insurance companies in IL. These plans help pay for costs not covered by Medicare, like deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance. There are no networks and you are free to use any doctor or healthcare provider you choose who accepts Medicare.
Part C is offered through private insurance companies approved by Medicare. When you join a plan, you still have Medicare coverage. Part A and B benefits are provided through the insurance company. Many plans offer low or zero monthly premiums. Most plans have additional benefits not provided by Medicare including prescription coverage, and dental and vision care.
