About Michigan Medicare Plans

Medicare Parts A and B are offered by the government. You can increase your coverage by purchasing a Part D drug coverage plan and a Medicare Supplement plan from a private insurance company. Medicare Supplement plans cover expenses such as deductibles and copays that you would otherwise have to pay out of pocket.

As an alternative, you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan through a private insurance company. More than 762,000 Michigan residents are covered by Medicare Advantage, which rolls Medicare Part A and Part B into a single plan. Most plans also include prescription drug coverage, and some even include dental, vision, and/or hearing coverage.
