What is Medicare?
According to Medicare.gov
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD).
Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)
Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services
Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage Plans)
A Medicare Advantage Plan is a type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide you with all your Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage.
Medicare Part D (Prescription Drug Coverage)
Part D adds prescription drug coverage to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. These plans are offered by insurance companies and other private companies approved by Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans may also offer prescription drug coverage that follows the same rules as Medicare Prescription Drug Plans.
Medicare Supplement (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, as much as the entire balance of the bill.
A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan. A Medicare Advantage Plan replaces your Medicare benefits with benefits considered to be as good as Medicare, while a Medigap policy supplements your Original Medicare benefits.
We want you to get the Medicare information you deserve… but sometimes it helps to hear what other people have to say about us first…
“I knew nothing about Medicare options. The seminar was enlightening. The appointment in December for options was so helpful making my April appointment to finalize so easy.
I will be referring a couple friends next year!”
– Nancy M.
“123EasyMedicare has made a very complicated process easy to understand and determine the best options for me. She is professional and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. I truly appreciate her assistance. I was referred to your company by a friend. I attended the seminar which was the best first step in the process and I recommend to others. I will refer others in the future. Thank you…!”
– Anna M.
“The Certified Medicare Planners at 123Easy Medicare were supremely knowledgeable, excellent at explaining the rules, shortcuts, risks and rules. They spoke in terms we completely understood. They are bright and make the learning process fun and instructive. It really imparted as much information as a well-planned seminar and it was enjoyable and positive. I can’t imagine it being done better anywhere in this country.”
– Bradford M.
