Medicare is federal health insurance for people 65 years or older and for those who are eligible due to a disability. The Social Security Administration recommends that you apply for Medicare Part’s A and B three months before you’d like your benefits to begin.
You will typically receive Medicare Part’s A and B enrollment information in the mail directly from the Social Security Administration, but if you don’t you’ll want to call them at 1-800-772-1213.
Medicare Part A is your hospital insurance coverage. Medicare Part B is your medical insurance that cover’s doctor bills and office visits. While basic Medicare (Part’s A and B) covers many of your health costs please note that they do not cover everything. For most people Medicare Part A is free. Below is a chart showing the 2023 Medicare Part B Premiums.
In 2023, the Medicare Part B deductible is $226. After you met your deductible, Medicare pays 80% of any Part B approved services and you are responsible for paying the remaining 20% with no cap on your out-of-pocket costs. Medicare Part B covers outpatient services like doctor visits, lab tests, x-rays, and other services.
If you’re a Medicare beneficiary looking for coverage to fill in the gaps for Medicare Part A and Part B, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find a choice of supplemental or “Medigap” coverage options at competitive rates to help fill those gaps.
Medicare Supplement or “Medigap” plans are available in standardized plan designs: A, F, G and N.
