Medicare Options

What are the primary Medicare options?

There are two primary ways to get Medicare Coverage.

The first option is Original Medicare. You will then need to decide if you also want to purchase Prescription Drug Coverage and Supplemental Insurance.

The second option is a Medicare Advantage Plan. There is no Supplemental Insurance to purchase and often times Prescription Drug Coverage is included with the Medicare Advantage Plan.
