|Yes. At least in theory it is possible, but you may only be wasting money on duplicated services.|
The two types of Medicare coverage do not work together to bring you more benefits. You will use either a Medicare Advantage Plan or your Original Medicare A and B plus your Medicare Supplement.
As part of the Medicare Advantage enrollment process, insurance carriers work to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries understand - and do not duplicate coverage.
As noted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS):
“If you have a Medigap policy and you are switching from the Original Medicare Plan to a Medicare Advantage Plan, you don’t need and can’t use the Medigap policy to cover deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance under the Medicare Advantage Plan. You may want to drop your Medigap policy, but you should talk to your State Health Insurance Assistance Program … and your current Medigap insurance company before you do because you may not be able to get it back.” (Choosing a Medicap Policy: A Guide to Health Insurance for People with Medicare, CMS)
