Medicare Beneficiary Guide

A Simple Guide to Reconnect with Medicare or Navigate Benefit Adjustments

Medicare Literacy Made Easy

Your health care benefits. Your health care goals. Your health partner.

Nothing stays the same forever. It’s likely your health and/or you needs have changed over the past year. There’s not a one-size-fits-all plan and maybe your plan this year will no longer work for your needs next year.


If you are enrolled in some form of Medicare (Part A and/or B, Part C, Part D, or Medicare Supplement), then this guide is for you.

Costs, Coverage & Enrollment

Information to help beneficiaries make the most of enrollment and coverage

Notifications, Care & Support

Tips to manage notifications and information related to coverage

A Roadmap for a Better Standard of Benefits

Ilustration of a man

The first (and perhaps critical) step to improving healthcare is having a plan that meets your health needs and budget. You should determine what needs you have today (and in the future), which doctors and/or specialists you need care for, and how important is having a financial safeguard against unpredictable healthcare costs. The task of finding, comparing, and understanding which plan meets your needs is tough. And stats like “one in five Medicare beneficiaries say their current plan already does not meet their health needs” gives us heartburn.

Our goal is to provide you the information you need to make more confident decisions and take control of your healthcare. GoHealth offers digital resources and productive benefits consulting - free of charge with no obligations to enroll.
