A Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO) is another Medicare health plan choice you may have as part of Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” are offered by private companies approved by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still have Medicare. You will get your Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from the Medicare Advantage Plan and not Original Medicare.
A Medigap policy is health insurance sold by private insurance companies to fill the “gaps” in Original Medicare Plan coverage. Medigap policies help pay some of the health care costs that the Original Medicare Plan doesn't cover. If you are in the Original Medicare Plan and have a Medigap policy, then Medicare and your Medigap policy will each pay its share of covered health care costs.

People buy life insurance to ensure that their beneficiaries have enough money to maintain their standard of living after the policyholder dies. Beneficiaries are the people you designate to get the money from the life insurance policy after you die. This money is called a death benefit.
As one gets older, the need for life insurance coverage does not go away. It does, however, change. Final expense life insurance is a type of coverage that provides funds for the cost of a funeral, burial, and other related expenses that are considered to be one’s “final expenses.” This coverage is sometimes referred to as “burial insurance” or “funeral insurance.” The face amount of this coverage is not typically high, with proceeds usually ranging between $5,000 and $50,000 per policy.
