What is Medicare? Medicare Benefits
Part C allows various HMOs, PPOs and similar health care organizations to offer health insurance plans to Medicare beneficiaries. At a minimum, they must provide the same benefits that the Original Medicare Plan provides under Parts A and B. Part C organizations are also permitted to offer additional benefits such as dental and vision care. But, to control costs, Part C plans are allowed to limit a patient’s choice of doctors, hospitals, etc., to just those who are members of their networks. This can be a major disadvantage if a patient’s favorite doctor or hospital is not a member of their networks.
