What is Medicare?

Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 years or older, as well as for certain younger people with disabilities and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, also called ESRD).

As with other insurance plans, Medicare offers options, and it’s in your best interest to know what these options are and figure out whether or not they meet your needs. One of our Comfort Insurance & Finance agents can help you understand these plans and determine which is right for you.

  1. Do you know what Original Medicare is, how it works, and what is covered?
  2. What is a Medicare Advantage Plan, and who could benefit from it?
  3. What about Medicare Supplement insurance plans (MediGap); what are they, who needs them, and how do they work?
  4. How do you enroll in a plan, and at what age do you quality?
