Medicare Supplement Insurance FAQ

How does Medicare work?

Once you reach 65 years old or have certain permanaent disabilities you can enroll to get Medicare coverage. Original Medicare includes Part A (Hospital Coverage) ad Part B (Medical Insurance Coverage). Medicare Part D offers prescription coverage benefits.

Medicare doesn’t pay for all expenses thaat’s whyit’s important to have a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan.

How do I get Medicare?

Once you reach the required age (65 and up) or are permanently disabled you can enroll in a Medicare through Medicare.gov. Enrollment period is Oct. 15 through Dec. 7

How does Medicare work for people with disabilities?

If you have a permanent disability (both under and over the years 65) and have been disabled for 2 years, you may qualify for Medicare. Medicare for people with qualifying disability will automatically be enrolled in Medicare Part A & Part B.
