Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare supplement insurance plans can both help Medicare beneficiaries get coverage above and beyond what’s offered by Original Medicare (Parts A & B). But each plan works differently and serves a different purpose. It’s important not to confuse them.
Medicare covers three main types of outpatient rehabilitation therapy:
Original Medicare a federal health insurance program for Americans aged 65 and older and others with qualifying disabilities. It has two parts – Part A and Part B. Each part covers specific health care services.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men, after skin cancer. However, it is also very treatable when diagnosed early. The 5-year survival rate for localized prostate cancer is 100 percent.
Mammograms may rival colonoscopies for the least-favorite screening test among women. In spite of this, many women stick to a regular schedule of getting them—and with good reason.
Medicare Part B covers doctor visits, lab tests, preventive screenings and other outpatient health care services. Part B costs include a monthly premium, an annual deductible and coinsurance for most services.
