➤ Medicare: Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Medicare Advantage Plan?
Medicare Part C, usually known as Medicare Advantage, is offered by private health care organizations. These plans cover all services under Parts A & B and usually offer prescription drug coverage and may offer extra coverage like vision, hearing, dental and other health and wellness programs.
What is a Medicare Supplement?
Sold by private companies, Medicare supplemental insurance plans are also known as Medigap plans. Medicare supplemental insurance plans fill in coverage gaps (such as cost sharing or additional benefits) found in Original Medicare (Parts A and B). Medigap plans allow you to choose any Medicare-certified doctor or hospital regardless of network.
When do I have to enroll in Medicare?
Contact Social Security 4 to 6 months prior to turning 65 years of age at 1-800-772-1213 (toll free), or visit your local Social Security office to confirm your eligibility for Medicare and to determine the earliest date when you can request your Medicare card.
Will I still be able to see my CSHP doctor?
Yes, current CSHP patients can continue to see their current primary care physician.
I have TRICARE For Life (TFL), how does that work with Medicare?
When you have Medicare Parts A and B, you can use TRICARE For Life (TFL). Medicare is your primary insurance, TFL is the secondary payer, so your out-of-pocket expenses are less. TFL benefits include covering Medicare’s coinsurance and deductible.
