New to Medicare?
Let’s start with the Medicare basics…
Feeling lost or overwhelmed?
Remember, you are not alone! Thousands of Americans each day turn 65 and become eligible to apply for their Medicare benefits. Medicare is an awesome benefit but it can be confusing when you first become eligible.
If you prefer to speak via phone or meet in person, just let us know, because understanding your new Medicare coverage and selecting the right option is important.
With multiple types of insurance plans and hundreds of coverage options available through the Medicare program, selecting the right plan can seem overwhelming. And with all the Medicare options available, many people enroll in plans that don’t cover what they need or they simply end up paying too much. The decisions you make when first enrolling in Medicare are very important and can have lasting effects on your healthcare coverage and the amount you pay.

About Original Medicare
The combination of Parts A & B of Medicare become our basic hospitalization and medical coverage and is commonly referred to as Original Medicare. This foundation of coverage is usually complemented by either electing a Medicare Supplement or Part C Advantage plan.
Paying for Medicare coverage works a little differently then how we paid our health insurance premiums during our working years. While most of us have paid one large premium for all of our healthcare coverage during our working years, Medicare coverage is paid in several smaller amounts for individual parts of coverage.
Applying For Medicare
Getting started early is one of the best things you can do to ensure a stress free enrollment into Medicare. Starting early allows you time to get your paperwork submitted and approved with enough time to spare to easily handle any issues that may arise along the way.

Supplement or Advantage
Which plan is right for me?
Both Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage (Part C of Medicare) plans have their own purpose, and selecting the right plan for your personal needs is an important decision as you become Medicare eligible. If you feel you have a unique situation or if you are currently receiving government assistance then it is always best to speak with a licensed agent to find out what options are available to you.
