The option to use private health plans to receive their Medicare benefits has been available to Medicare beneficiaries since the 1970s. Today a growing number of them are using HMOs and PPOs to get their Medicare benefits instead of going through original Medicare. Those benefits include payment for in-patient and outpatient hospital services, medical supplies and equipment, skilled nursing services and hospice care. Unlike original Medicare, payment is made through the federal government and not the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Since 2003 that alternative method of receiving treatment and making payments has been known as Medicare Advantage.
