Our experience has shown that the proper choice can make a dramatic difference in your health delivery options. Decide how to get your Medicare coverage “There are 2 main ways to get your Medicare coverage—Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage. If you choose Original Medicare, you can add a separate Medicare drug plan and/or Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap). Most Medicare Advantage Plans include drug coverage and may offer some extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover—like vision, hearing, and dental services.” (Medicare & You 2022, p. 3)
