Medicare Information

Original Medicare is the health insurance program provided by the federal U.S. government to people 65 & older, or younger people with certain disabilites may also qualify.

What is Original Medicare? Original medicare refers to Medicare Parts A & B. Part A covers hospital-related services and emergency care. Part B covers services like doctor visits, lab tests, immunizations, and necessary equipment like wheelchairs. Note: if you don't enroll in Part B when you're first eligible, or if you drop it and get it aain later, you may have to pay a late-enrollment penalty.

What is Medicare Advantage (Part C) ? Offered by private insurance companies, under contract to replace Original Medicare benefits. They cover benefits that Part A & B cover & can offer additional benefits such as vision, hearing, & dental. Most plans also include prescription drug coverage. Plans may hae lower out-of-pocket costs than Original Medicare.

What is a Prescription Drug Plan (Part D) ? Medicare Part D plans help pay for prescription medications. They are only available from private insurance companies. You must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B to enroll in Part D.

When can I enroll in Medicare Advantage or Drug Plans ? Once you are enrolled into Original Medicare Parts A & B. When you are newly eligible for Medicare three months before your 65th birthday and three months after you turn 65. You may qualify for a SPecial Enrollment Period if you experience certain life events, such as moving outside your current plan's service area or losing emplyer based health coverage. You can also switch, add, or drop your plan during the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period from October 15 - December 7 each year. CALL to Speak with a Licensed Agent to learn more.

What is Supplemental/Medigap Insurance ? Supplemental Insurance is available from private insurance companies and helps pay out-of-pocket costs not covered by Original Medicare Part A & B.
