Medicare Options

At a high level, most people have two main options to consider when transitioning to full Medicare coverage.

OPTION #1  Original Medicare

  • This option usually consists of the combination of:
    • Original Medicare (Parts A and B)
    • Plus a Medicare Supplement Plan (aka Medigap)
    • Plus a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D).
  • Most everyone pays a monthly rate for Part B (most people don’t have to pay anything for Part A).
  • Supplement Plans and Prescription Drug Plans each charge you a monthly premium (in addition to your cost of Medicare Part B).

OPTION #2  Medicare Advantage Plan

  • This is sometimes described as all-in-one Medicare Coverage.
  • These plans bundle Parts A, B, and D into one plan (a supplement is not required).
  • Most times these plans contain extra benefits over what original Medicare provides.
  • And, many Medicare Advantage Plans have no additional monthly cost (you still pay Medicare for Part B).
