What else is there?
Medicare Part C plans are insurance plans offered by private insurance companies. These plans, otherwise known as Medicare Advantage plans or MA plans, provide the same coverage as Original Medicare with the benefit of supplemental coverage.
Medicare Part D is insurance for your medication needs. You use the carrier's network of pharmacies to purchase your prescriptions. Instead of paying full price, you will pay a copay or percentage of the drug’s cost.
You can get Medicare Part D coverage through a stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plan - PDP (if you’re enrolled in Original Medicare) or through a Medicare Advantage plan (also known as a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan - MAPD.)

What is "Original Medicare?"
This is a fee-for-service health plan that has two parts: Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance). After you pay a deductible, Medicare pays its share of the Medicare-approved amount, and you pay your share (coinsurance and deductibles).
Some things to know about Original Medicare
...and there's also...
Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) that helps fill "gaps" in Original Medicare and is sold by private companies. Original Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the cost for covered health care services and supplies. A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, like Co-payments, Coinsurance and Deductibles.
IMPORTANT: Medigap plans DO NOT cover prescriptions!
