What’s the Difference Between Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement?

What’s the Difference Between Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement?

Medicare Advantage lets you get Medicare Parts A and B (“Original Medicare”) covered by a private insurer instead of the federal government; the benefit of this is that you usually get additional coverage (like vision or dental coverage). Choose Medicare Supplement if you want to keep your Original Medicare coverage through the federal government, but still want some additional coverage.
