Medicare Made Easy: A Simplified Guide to Signing Up

Navigating the Medicare enrollment process can be complex, but Access Health Care Physicians, LLC is here to simplify it for you. This easy-to-follow guide will walk you through the steps to sign up for Medicare and help you understand the basics.

1. Know Your Eligibility
You are eligible for Medicare at age 65, even if you're not yet receiving Social Security benefits.

Disability: If you have a qualifying disability, you may become eligible for Medicare before turning 65.

2. Understand the Parts of Medicare
Part A (Hospital Insurance):
Covers hospital stays, skilled nursing facility care, hospice, and some home health care.

Part B (Medical Insurance): Covers outpatient care, doctor visits, preventive services, and some home health care.

Part C (Medicare Advantage): An alternative that combines Part A, Part B, and sometimes Part D (prescription drug coverage) into a single plan.

Part D (Prescription Drug Coverage): Provides assistance with the costs of prescription medications.

3. Choose the Right Time to Enroll

Initial Enrollment Period (IEP): Begins three months before your 65th birthday month and extends three months after.

General Enrollment Period (GEP): January 1 to March 31 each year, but late penalties may apply.

Special Enrollment Periods (SEPs): Available for specific situations, like losing other health coverage or moving.

4. Select Your Coverage
Original Medicare (Parts A and B):
Considered traditional Medicare, allowing you to visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare.

Medicare Advantage (Part C): Combines Part A, Part B, and often Part D into a single plan, usually with added benefits like vision and dental coverage.

5. Review Additional Coverage Options
Medigap (Medicare Supplement Insurance): Helps cover costs that Original Medicare doesn't, such as copayments and deductibles.
