Parts of Medicare (Scrap)

Generally, Parts A and B are referred to as “Original Medicare” (Red-White-Blue Medicare Card). Part C (Medicare Advantage) is NOT part of Original Medicare as your Part A and Part B health coverage is completely taken over and managed by a private insurance company (Cigna, Humana, Aetna, etc.) You will NOT use the Red-White-Blue Medicare card that Medicare (Federal Government) sends you. If you have a Part C (Medicare Advantage plan), you can put your Red-White-Blue card away in the kitchen drawer. Your Medicare Advantage company will send you ONE card for everything (Hospital, Medical, Prescriptions drugs).
