Understanding Medicare

We get it—the world of health care and the Medicare process can be confusing. Let’s find out what Medicare is and if it works for you!

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health plan. It’s available to people age 65 and over, as well as people with disabilities and End-Stage Renal Disease/kidney failure.

There are a number of Medicare coverage options to fit your needs and lifestyle:

  • Original Medicare is a fee-for-service health plan that has 2 parts: Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance). You can go to any doctor, supplier, hospital, or other facility that accepts Medicare, and is accepting new Medicare patients.
  • Medicare Advantage, also known as Part C, is a type of Medicare plan offered by a private company, like Cigna. These plans provide you with all your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits and may include plan extras not offered by Original Medicare.
  • Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Coverage provides optional prescription drug coverage to anyone with Medicare. Private companies, like Cigna, offer this as a standalone Part D plan or with select Medicare Advantage Plans.
