Thank you for visiting our Medicare information website! If you are already on Medicare or within a few months of turning 65 and going onto Medicare for the first time, then you are probably receiving tons of information in the mail, and even receiving lots of phone calls regarding your Medicare coverage. Unfortunately, because you're getting bombarded with so much information, it tends to become confusing and overwhelming, when in fact Medicare is pretty simple and straightforward for most people. What we offer at ExplainMedicare.com, is a simple and free consultation over the phone or in person with a representative in your area that will explain exactly what Original Medicare parts A&B (through the Federal Government) and parts C&D (through private insurance companies) cover, including the monthly premiums, deductibles and copays that you will be responsible for as a Medicare beneficiary.

What we can do for YOU!

There are many choices out there for you when it comes to Medicare Supplements (also known as secondary insurance or Medigap insurance) as well as Medicare Advantage plans (part C) and Prescriptions Drug Plans (known as PDPs or Part D of Medicare). However, it is crucial to have a good understanding of original Medicare (parts A&B) first before you try to decide which type of plan and which company to choose in order to cover what Medicare does not cover.

We specialize in doing just that. We explain how Medicare works, what your options are, and what the pros and cons are for the many plans that are available to you in your area. We do this free of charge in a classroom setting or an individual appointment, and we represent several different companies that offer Medicare Supplements, Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Advantage Plans, so that you know the monthly premiums, advantages and disadvantages of each type of plan. Some plans have no monthly premiums at all, and we will explain how those work as well. We also explain the penalty that comes with not enrolling in a prescription drug plan, as well as the prescription coverage gap, also known as the “Donut Hole”. This knowledge will make your decision much, much EASIER. After our initial consultation, you will feel very confident about your decision to either go with a supplement or an advantage plan, and which company to choose.
