Medicare Part A – Hospital Insurance

Medicare Part A, is also known as hospital insurance. All U.S. residents, who are eligible will automatically be enrolled for Medicare coverage and receive benefits. Those who do not meet these qualifications can still obtain Medicare Part A for a monthly premium. Contact 1-800-MEDICARE / TTY 1-877-486-2048 to sign up for Medicare Part A if you don’t qualify for automatic enrollment.

Medicare Part B

Medicare Part B is elective, meaning enrollment will not be automatic. Anyone looking to receive medical benefits through Medicare Part B must contact Social Security directly. You can also use the Social Security Online Benefit Application located on their website to enroll.

Medicare Part C & D

Medicare Part C, Medicare Part D, and Medicare Supplement Insurance are a little different. These types of plans are offered through private insurance companies. This means that you may have to contact them directly to enroll. Some enrollees choose to do the research, selection, and enrollment for these private plans by themselves. Selecting a Part C, Part D, or Medicare Supplement Plan can be a daunting task. This is why many more enrollees look for assistance. Licensed sales agents are a great resource because they can compare multiple plans from different carriers in easier terms. There is also a great advantage in the fact that many licensed sales agents often work independently from the carriers. This means that they will not feel pressure to sell one particular plan and will be free to make the best suggestion for the consumer.
