Medicare Eligible in Maine? Know Your Options 

HealthMarkets can help you understand each plan and the different components. Here are the basics:

Medicare Part A is hospitalization insurance. Medicare Part B is medical insurance and covers things like doctor visits, outpatient care, preventive services, and medical supplies.2,3

Together, Parts A & B make up “Original Medicare.” For additional benefits, you can add a prescription drug plan (Medicare Part D) and/or a Medicare Supplement plan, which can help pay for out-of-pocket expenses like deductibles and copays.

Medicare Part C, or Medicare Advantage, allows you to purchase Parts A & B through a private insurance company in a single bundled plan. There are a variety of plans to choose from, many with drug, dental, vision, and hearing coverage included.4
