To be considered for Medicare eligibility in Utah, most people are required to be at least 65 years of age or older. However, other factors play a role in determining Medicare eligibility, such as whether or not you are permanently disabled or suffer from a chronic illness. If you don’t qualify for Medicare, don’t worry – there are plenty of other affordable options available to you. The licensed representatives at HealthMarkets Insurance Agency can help you apply for government subsidies or tax credits that will make your monthly premiums more affordable.
Types of Medicare Plans
Medicare is made up of 4 parts, each covering different healthcare services:
- Medicare Part A: Hospital insurance.
- Medicare Part B: Medical insurance.
- Medicare Part C: Medical Advantage.
- Medicare Part D: Prescription drug coverage.
Many people who receive Medicare benefits opt to have their benefits distributed via a third-party private provider, which Medicare Advantage (Part C) enables you to do. If you do qualify for Medicare, you’ll want to consider this option, as there are a number of plans that offer different services for different monthly premiums. Medicare Advantage includes the same benefits of Original Medicare but often includes drug coverage (part D) as well.
