Medicare in Texas

Beneficiaries in Texas can receive coverage through Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, and then add prescription drug coverage and/or a Medicare Supplement insurance policy for more comprehensive health insurance. Or, they can join a private Medicare Advantage plan, also called Medicare Part C. These plans offer at least the same amount of coverage as Medicare Part A and Part B (except for hospice care), but may also include other benefits, such as routine vision and dental, hearing, or prescription drug coverage.
