Frequently Asked Questions Straight from medicare.gov

What is Medicare?

Medicare is the federal health insurance program for:

-People who are 65 or older
-Certain younger people with disabilities
-People with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD)

What are the different parts of Medicare?

The different parts of Medicare help cover specific services:

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)
Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)
Part B covers certain doctors' services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.

Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage)
Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs (including many recommended shots or vaccines).

How does Medicare work?

With Medicare, you have options in how you get your coverage. Once you enroll, you’ll need to decide how you’ll get your Medicare coverage. There are 2 main ways:

-Original Medicare
-Medicare Advantage

How does Original Medicare work?

Original Medicare is coverage managed by the federal government. Generally, there's a cost for each service. Here are the general rules for how it works:

Can I get my health care from any doctor, other health care provider, or hospital?
In most cases, yes. You can go to any doctor, health care provider, hospital, or facility that is enrolled in Medicare and accepting new Medicare patients.

Are prescriptions covered in Original Medicare?

With a few exceptions, most prescriptions aren't covered in Original Medicare. You can add drug coverage by joining a Medicare drug plan (Part D).

Do I need to choose a primary care doctor?

No, in Original Medicare you don't need to choose a primary care doctor.

Do I have to get a referral to see a specialist?

In most cases, no. In Original Medicare, you don't need a referral, but the specialist must be enrolled in Medicare.

Should I get a supplemental policy?

You may already have employer or union coverage that may pay costs that Original Medicare doesn't. If not, you may want to buy a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy.

What does Original Medicare include?

Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). You pay for services as you get them. When you get services, you’ll pay a deductible at the start of each year, and you usually pay 20% of the cost of the Medicare-approved service, called coinsurance. If you want drug coverage, you can add a separate drug plan (Part D).

Original Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the cost for covered health care services and supplies. A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. Some Medigap policies also cover services that Original Medicare doesn't cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S.

Contact us to learn the general rules for how Original Medicare works, Request One-On-One Consultation

What else do I need to know about Original Medicare?

-You generally pay a set amount for your health care (deductible) before Medicare pays its share. Then, Medicare pays its share, and you pay your share (coinsurance / copayment) for covered services and supplies. There's no yearly limit for what you pay out-of-pocket.

-You usually pay a monthly premium for Part B.

-You generally don't need to file Medicare claims. The law requires providers and suppliers to file your claims for the covered services and supplies you get. Providers include doctors, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and home health agencies.

What’s Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage is an “all in one” alternative to Original Medicare. These “bundled” plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D. Most plans offer extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover — like vision, hearing, dental, and more. Medicare Advantage Plans have yearly contracts with Medicare and must follow Medicare’s coverage rules. The plan must notify you about any changes before the start of the next enrollment year. Request an One-On-One consultation here, to learn about the types of Medicare Advantage Plans.

Each Medicare Advantage Plan can charge different out-of-pocket costs. They can also have different rules for how you get services. Contact us to learn more about how Medicare Advantage Plans work, Request One-On-One Consultation.

How do Medicare Advantage Plans work?

Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called "Part C" or "MA Plans," are an “all in one” alternative to Original Medicare. They are offered by private companies approved by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still have Medicare. These "bundled" plans include Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance), and usually Medicare drug coverage (Part D).

What does Medicare prescription drug (Part D) cover?

Medicare drug coverage helps pay for prescription drugs you need. To get Medicare drug coverage, you must join a Medicare-approved plan that offers drug coverage (this includes Medicare drug plans and Medicare Advantage Plans with drug coverage).

Each plan can vary in cost and specific drugs covered, but must give at least a standard level of coverage set by Medicare. Medicare drug coverage includes generic and brand-name drugs. Plans can vary the list of prescription drugs they cover (called a formulary) and how they place drugs into different "tiers" on their formularies.

Plans have different monthly premiums. You’ll also have other costs throughout the year in a Medicare drug plan. How much you pay for each drug depends on which plan you choose.

Contact us to learn more about how to get Medicare drug coverage & costs, Request One-On-One Consultation.

What services are covered in the Medicare Advantage Plans?

Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer coverage for things Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like some vision, hearing, dental, and fitness programs (like gym memberships or discounts). Plans can also choose to cover even more benefits. For example, some plans may offer coverage for services like transportation to doctor visits, over-the-counter drugs, and services that promote your health and wellness. Plans can also tailor their benefit packages to offer these benefits to certain chronically-ill enrollees. These packages will provide benefits customized to treat specific conditions. Check with the plan before you enroll to see what benefits it offers, if you might qualify, and if there are any limitations.

How does Medicare work with my other insurance?

When you have another insurance, there's more than one "payer" for your coverage.
