This insurance comes in four plans which are plan A; plan B, plan C and plan D. All the plans offer different services by covering different areas of your health.
All the Medicare coverage plans cover different areas. For instance, Plan A. covers areas such as meals in the hospital, hospital supplies and services, nursing and semi private rooms. Some of these areas are not covered in the other ones.
