Types of Medicare Plans in New York

Aetna offers a wide variety of Medicare insurance plans in both New York City and New York State. Choose from federally funded plans, such as Medicare Part A and/or Part B, or get more benefits by selecting a private insurance policy, like Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D.

Speak with a licensed agent today to find out what kind of Medicare plan you may be eligible for.

Types of plans include:

Original Medicare (Parts A and B) plans

Original Medicare is made up of two parts: Part A and Part B. Medicare Part A, also known as “hospital insurance,” covers your inpatient care at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, or hospices. Medicare Part B, on the other hand, sometimes called “medical insurance” helps pay for your Medicare-approved outpatient care. This includes medical services and supplies such as doctor’s visits, physical therapy, and preventative care. It also covers durable medical equipment (DME) that you may need, like oxygen pumps, walkers, and wheelchairs. Original Medicare is funded and administered by the federal government.

Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans

Medicare Advantage plans are regulated by the federal government but are sold by private insurance companies. By law, all Medicare Advantage plans must provide all the same coverage as Original Medicare, but most plans offer additional coverage and benefits, too. This may include prescription drug coverage and services like vision, dental, hearing aids, health and wellness programs, or gym memberships.

Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plans

If you’re eligible for Medicare Parts A or B, you can choose to purchase a Medicare Part D plan separately. Medicare Part D helps pay for the cost of your prescription drugs and medications. Coverage for specific drugs varies based on what’s called a “formulary,” a list of drugs separated into “tiers” according to price. Note: Medicare Part D coverage may be included in some Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans.
