    Medigap and Medicare Advantage are as different as apples and oranges.

    Medigap, also known as Medicare supplement, is designed to work in conjunction with original Medicare. Your original Medicare plan has no networks but does have deductibles and coinsurance that can leave you owing several thousand dollars.

    Medicare Advantage (formerly known as Medicare Part C) is a privately managed Medicare benefit offered by insurance carriers. With Medicare Advantage plans you have network providers, lower premiums than Medigap, and significantly higher out of pocket.
