Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common Medicare questions to help you make informed decisions.

What's the difference between Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage?

Original Medicare, consisting of Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance), is a federal program offering coverage directly through Medicare. You can see any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, anywhere in the U.S. Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans, on the other hand, are offered by private insurance companies approved by Medicare. These plans provide all Part A and Part B benefits and often include additional coverage like vision, dental, and prescription drugs. While Medicare Advantage plans can offer extra benefits, they usually have network restrictions, meaning you may need to see providers within the plan’s network for care.

When can I enroll in Medicare or change my plan?

You can first enroll in Medicare during your Initial Enrollment Period, which is a 7-month window starting three months before the month you turn 65, including your birth month, and ending three months after. If you miss this period, you can enroll during the General Enrollment Period from January 1 to March 31 each year, with coverage starting July 1. For changing Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, the Annual Enrollment Period from October 15 to December 7 each year is your opportunity. Additionally, certain life events may qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period, allowing you to enroll or make changes outside these standard periods.

How does Medicare work with other insurance?

When you have Medicare and other insurance, such as employer coverage, the two plans work together as primary and secondary insurance to cover your healthcare costs. The “primary payer” pays up to the limits of its coverage first, and then the “secondary payer” covers additional costs. The coordination of benefits rules determine the order in which each plan pays. Typically, if you’re 65 or older and covered by a group health plan through your or your spouse’s current employment, your employer insurance pays first, and Medicare acts as the secondary payer.

What are Medicare Supplement Plans?

Medicare Supplement Plans, also known as Medigap, are policies sold by private companies to help cover some of the healthcare costs not covered by Original Medicare, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. These plans can only be used with Original Medicare and are not compatible with Medicare Advantage Plans. Choosing the right Medigap policy depends on your healthcare needs and financial situation, as costs can vary by plan and company.

How can I reduce out-of-pocket costs?

To minimize out-of-pocket costs, consider enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan that offers lower copays and includes prescription drug coverage or choosing a Medigap plan that covers additional costs not paid by Original Medicare. Reviewing your plan options annually during the Open Enrollment Period can ensure you have the most cost-effective coverage for your needs. Additionally, check if you qualify for assistance programs like Medicaid, Medicare Savings Programs, or Extra Help for prescription drugs, which can significantly reduce your healthcare expenses.

How do I choose the right Medicare plan?

Choosing the right Medicare plan involves assessing your healthcare needs, budget, and preferences. Consider factors like the doctors you want to see, your prescription medications, and how much you’re willing to pay in premiums and out-of-pocket costs. Compare the benefits and costs of Original Medicare with a Medigap policy versus Medicare Advantage plans. Take advantage of resources like the Medicare Plan Finder tool on Medicare.gov, or consult with a Medicare counselor from your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) for personalized assistance. Remember, what’s right for someone else may not be the best choice for you, so focus on your unique needs.
