Navigating your Medicare benefits may seem overwhelming. You’d rather spend your time doing just about anything else. But it’s important to make the right choice. When you break it down into a few small steps, choosing your Medicare coverage may be easier than you think.

1. Learn about Medicare (Part A and Part B)

Medicare includes Part A (hospital costs) and Part B (doctor and outpatient care). You may also choose to enroll in Part D (prescription drug coverage) or a Medigap policy (supplemental insurance) for an additional cost. Read more at Medicare Basics.

2. Explore Medicare Advantage plans (Part C)

Medicare Advantage plans are approved by Medicare to provide you with coverage for Medicare Part A and Part B. Most plans combine medical and prescription drug coverage. Extra benefits for dental care, hearing aids and vision may also be offered. Learn more about Medicare Advantage plans.

3. Get ready to enroll

You may contact the Medicare Advantage health plan directly.
