You are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A when you turn 65. This plan covers hospital care, short-term home care and hospice.
Medicare Part B covers your doctor's visits, lab tests and other medical care. Enrollment is automatic, but it isn't free. You will pay a monthly premium and a yearly deductible.
Offered by private insurance companies, Medicare Advantage plans are an alternative to Original Medicare coverage, Medicare Supplement and Part D.
If you need prescription drug coverage, choose a Medicare Part D plan. Private insurance companies offer a variety of plans, so choose carefully based on your needs.
If you want more coverage than Original Medicare provides, choose a Medicare Supplement plan from a private insurance company. These plans are standardized, but costs can vary.
- Be aware of open enrollment dates for different Medicare plans. You may be able to enroll or change your plan once a year.
- Insurance companies are required to enroll you in Medicare Supplement plans regardless of your health condition during your initial enrollment period. After this time, you may not be able to get coverage.
- The cheapest plans are not always the best. Compare not only the monthly premium, but the annual maximum, deductible and copayments.
- Make sure the doctor you want is in your network.
- Make sure the prescription drug (dosage and quantity) you need is covered.
