Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as "Part C" or "MA Plans," are a "one-stop shop" for all things Medicare. They are issued by Medicare-approved private corporations. You still have Medicare if you enter a Medicare Advantage Plan. Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) are commonly included with these "bundled" policies, as well as Medicare drug coverage (Part D).
