What is Medicare?
Medicare is the 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).
The different parts of Medicare help cover specific benefits:
Medicare Part A - Hospital Insurance
Helps cover inpatient care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (following a hospital stay), home health care services, and hospice care services. Copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles may apply for each service. You usually do not pay a monthly premium for Part A coverage if you or your spouse paid Medicare taxes while working.
MEDICARE PART A
Medicare Part B - Medical Insurance
Helps cover doctors' services, outpatient care, home health services, and other medical services. Part B also covers some preventive services. Copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles may apply for each service. You can find out if you have Part B by looking at your Medicare card. You pay the Part B premium each month. Part A and Part B are often referred to as “Original Medicare”.If you are a higher income earner, be sure to note the IRMAA added to your part B premium, click here for additional information.
MEDICARE PART B
Medicare Part C - Medicare Advantage Plans
A type of Medicare health plan offered by private insurance companies approved by and under contract with Medicare.Includes Part A, Part B, and, usually, other coverage like prescription drugs. Medicare Advantage Plans may offer extra coverage, such as vision, hearing, dental, and/or health and wellness programs. In addition to your Part B premium, you usually pay one monthly premium for the services provided.
MEDICARE PART C
Medicare Part D - Prescription Drug Coverage
A prescription drug option offered by private companies approved by and under contract with Medicare. Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs, may help lower your prescription drug costs and help protect against higher costs in the future. Part D is available to everyone with Medicare.
If you are a higher income earner, be sure to note the IRMAA added to your part D premiums, click here for additional information.

MEDICARE PART D
Medicare Supplement Insurance/Medigap
A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, sold by private companies, can help pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn't cover, 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. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.
A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan.
Things To Know About Medigap Policies
You must have Medicare Part A and Part B.
If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, you can apply for a Medigap policy, but make sure you can leave the MedicareAdvantage Plan before your Medigap policy begins.
You pay the private insurance company a monthly premium for your Medigap policy in addition to the monthly Part B premium that you pay to Medicare.A Medigap policy only covers one person.
If you and your spouse both want Medigap coverage, you'll each have to buy separate policies.
You can buy a Medigap policy from any insurance company that's licensed in your state to sell one.
Any standardized Medigap policy is guaranteed renewable even if you have health problems. This means the insurance company can't cancel your Medigap policy as long as you pay the premium.
Some Medigap policies sold in the past cover prescription drugs, but Medigap policies sold after January 1, 2006 aren't allowed to include prescription drug coverage. If you want prescription drug coverage, you can join a MedicarePrescription Drug Plan (Part D).
It's illegal for anyone to sell you a Medigap policy if you have a Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSA) Plan.
Medigap policies don't cover everything.
Medigap policies generally don't cover long-term care, vision or dental care, hearing aids, eyeglasses, or private-duty nursing.
