How does Medicare work?

Medicare is a federal insurance program that offers benefits to Americans and permanent legal residents over 65 years old. When they are eligible, most people automatically enroll into Original Medicare Part A and Part B. However, some people need to manually enroll in Medicare. Medicare Part A refers to hospital insurance, while Medicare Part B refers to medical insurance.

Medicare Advantage (Medicare Section C) allows you to obtain Original Medicare coverage through a private, Medicare approved insurance company rather than directly through the government. Medicare Advantage plans offer all of your Medicare Part A, Part B benefits except hospice care which Part A does not cover.

Many Medicare Advantage plans also offer additional benefits such as routine vision and dental care. Prescription drug coverage is a common feature of most Medicare Advantage plans, which allows you to receive all your Medicare benefits from one plan. The Medicare Advantage plan may charge a premium. You will still need to pay your Medicare Part B monthly premium.

Prescription drugs will not be covered if you are enrolled in Original Medicare. Medicare Part D provides prescription drug coverage through private, Medicare approved insurance companies. A stand-alone Medicare Prescription drug Plan may be an option.

You can sign up for a Medicare supplement (Medigap), insurance plan to help cover Original Medicare's out of pocket costs. Different Medigap plans cover different amounts of these costs such as copayments and coinsurance.

Another option is to contact health insurance companies directly to see what plans are available in your area. Whether you're purchasing health insurance for the first time, wondering if you should change your health plan as your personal needs change, getting ready for the next Obamacare open enrollment period, or becoming qualified for a special enrollment period because of a major life change
