Medicare Part A is hospital insurance and covers in-patient hospital stays, skilled nursing facility care, hospice care, and some home health care.
Medicare Part B is medical insurance and covers some doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive care.
Medicare Part C is Medicare Advantage.
Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage and covers prescription drugs as well as many recommended vaccines.
