    They are not the thing. Thats why they are called Part C and Part D.

    Medicare Part C refers to the Medicare Advantage plan people can choose to enroll in instead of the Original Medicare plan.

    Part D is simply a drug prescription plan that you pay extra if you are in Original Medicare.

    Part D drug prescription plan is included in Medicare Advantage.
