Need Help Navigating Medicare?

Understanding Medicare and your options.

Medicare can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s often helpful to discuss the various Parts of Medicare to better understand your options, costs, and benefits. Doing so can assist you in making a more informative decision about your Medicare options available to you. After all, making an educated decision when it comes to your health coverage goes a long way in the healthcare and benefits you receive, as well as the cost.

Medicare is a federal government plan that provides health coverage for adults over 65 and those under 65 with certain disabilities. The Plan is funded by both Social Security, and Medicare taxes you pay on your income. 

Many people today are working past 65, for various reasons. If this is you, you don’t need to sign up for Medicare, as long as you are being covered by your employer’s group plan that covers at least 20 employees. You can also opt-out of enrolling at 65 if your spouse is covered by their employer group plan as well. Once again, only if that plan covers more than 20 employees.

Once you become Medicare eligible, you can enroll in:

  • Original Medicare, (Parts A and Part B), which pays providers directly for each service a person receives 
  • Medicare Advantage, which is a type of private insurance offered by companies that contract with Medicare

If you want prescription drug coverage called Part D with your Original Medicare, you will most likely need to sign up for a separate Medicare private drug plan. A drug plan through Original Medicare is called a PDP, while one through a Medicare Advantage plan is called a MAPD.
