Approximately 20 % of Missouri's residents receive Medicare benefits, either through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan. Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A (hospital coverage) and Medicare Part B (outpatient coverage). Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) and Medicare Supplement plans (Medigap) can be purchased separately for additional coverage .
Medicare Part C (also known as Medicare Advantage) is sold by private insurance companies. It bundles Medicare Part A and Part B into a single plan. Plus, it often includes prescription drug coverage and other benefits like dental and vision . Of the almost 1.2 million Missouri residents enrolled in Medicare in 2018, 32% of them enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan.
