Medicare 101

Improve Your Well-Being With Better Health Decisions

Ask any Medicare beneficiary, and they’ll likely tell you Medicare can be tricky. We can help you understand your options and recommend a plan that meets your health needs so you feel confident about your coverage and how much you will save.

Medicare Part A & B

What you first need when you enroll in Medicare.

While most people get Part A automatically, you must actively enroll in Part B separately. Both represent your basic hospital and medical insurance. To enroll in Medicare, you have to contact your Social Security Office.

Medicare part a & b

Medicare Advantage

Part A & B plus dental, hearing, vision & drugs.

Once you have Medicare Part A & B, you’ll be eligible to replace it with Medicare Part C. Medicare Part C gets you Part A and B benefits in addition to dental, hearing, vision, and even Part D prescription drugs benefits. Plan benefits may vary, but many are $0 premium.

Medicare Part C

Medicare Supplement

An add-on to Medicare Part A & B.

Medicare Part A & B can leave you susceptible to high healthcare costs. And while supplemental insurance comes with a separate premium, it can make your overall healthcare more affordable.

Medicare Supplement

Medicare Part D

An add-on to Medicare Part A & B.

Medicare Part A & B has minimal prescription drug coverage, which is why many people will add on a stand-alone prescription drug plan. Be sure you enroll in Part D benefits in order to avoid the lifetime late enrollment penalty.

Medicare Part D
