Want more from your Medicare coverage? You’re not alone. Many people find that the basic coverage isn’t enough. We offer solutions that can help.

What is Medicare?

Original Medicare is a government insurance program. It’s for people ages 65 and older, younger people with certain disabilities and anyone with end-stage renal disease. There are two parts:

  • Part A is for hospital services. It covers hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care and some home health care.
  • Part B is basic medical insurance. It covers health services from your doctor, outpatient medical care, medical supplies and preventive care.

However, there are some gaps. Original Medicare doesn’t cover the cost of medications, and members pay a significant share of costs when they receive care. That’s where Medicare Supplement, Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDP) and Medicare Advantage (MA) plans can help.
