New To Medicare

Feeling overwhelmed by Medicare? You are not alone.

If you are turning 65 and feeling overwhelmed about Medicare, or not sure where to start, you are not alone. Often times people can feel overwhelmed with information overload after seeing countless Medicare commercials or sifting through piles of junk mail. Common questions might arise such as, “When do I sign up? Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage? Is all that coverage they advertise really FREE? How much does it all cost? Can I afford it? Medicare Plans? Medicare Parts? What is the difference?!” These types of questions are very common when first entering the world of Medicare. Our mission at Medicare Hero is to make Medicare EASY and as SIMPLE as possible. We explain the process in terms you actually understand. Leave the hard work to us!

For most people, enrolling in Medicare will be the first time they have selected their own health insurance coverage; as employers typically choose their coverage. We understand selecting the right plan can be confusing and overwhelming to say the least. We are here to help you and go through this process together. The Medicare system is already complex as it is; we often find people enrolling in plans that do not provide proper coverage for their needs, their doctors are not covered in their network, or overpay for their plan. The decisions you make when first enrolling in Medicare are very important and can have lasting effects on your healthcare coverage and the amount you pay for it. Click Here to read our full list of the 10 most important things you need to know before joining Medicare.

Let's start with the Medicare basics...

Original Medicare

Medicare Part A and Part B form the foundation to Medicare coverage and are together commonly referred to as “Original Medicare”. Part A provides “hospitalization insurance”, which mostly assists with the cost of inpatient care, while Part B provides “medical insurance” for services including: doctors visits, outpatient procedures, x-rays, lab tests, and preventative services. 

Applying For Medicare

Getting started early is one of the best things you can do to ensure a stress free enrollment into Medicare. Starting early allows you time to find the best plan for you and allows for your paperwork to be submitted without any stress. Your initial enrollment period into Medicare begins (3) calendar months before the month you turn 65.
