Original Medicare

by David Bynon, last updated

Original Medicare refers to traditional Medicare health insurance coverage, which includes Medicare Part A (hospital coverage) and Medicare Part B (medical coverage). In all, there are four Medicare parts. Medicare Part C and Medicare Part D are private health insurance options. Medicare beneficiaries can supplement their Original Medicare coverage with a Medigap plan to help pay some of the deductibles and coinsurance costs.
