Who qualifies? Generally.. Medicare is offered to the age of 65 and older, younger people with disabilities, and people with End Stage Renal Disease. It is something that you will get and have for the rest of your life. Why is it important? A supplement or Advantage plan can help pay for what your Part A and Part B will not!
Original medicare include Medicare Part A and Part B. This helps to pay for your out-of-pocket costs (like your 20% deductible and coinsurance) in Original Medicare you can also shop for a Supplement plan, such as a Medicare Supplement (also known as Medigap policy).
Medicare Advantage (also known as Part C) is an alternative to Original Medicare. These plans may have lower out-of-pocket cost and may also offer extra benefits that Orginial Medicare does not offer.
If you want Prescription Drug coverage, you may purchase a Prescription Drug plan. Based on the prescriptions that you take, we can enroll you in the most affordable plan based on your needs. Annually, during open enrollment, this plan can be changed to better cover those new prescriptions that you have tackled on.
