What is Medicare?

Medicare was designed to help you afford good health care. It comes in Parts A, B, C, D. Parts A and B are called "Original Medicare" and are provided by the government. Parts A and B cover some basics like hospital stays and doctor visits, but they don't cover everything. You'll want more coverage to help pay for services not included in Original Medicare or to add benefits like prescription drug coverage or dental insurance.

IMPORTANT: If you decide not to enroll in Medicare Part B when you're first eligible, you may have to pay late-enrollment fees should you decide to enroll at a later date. Plus, you may be responsible for the medical expenses Medicare Part B would have covered.

What our customers say

Nearing age 65, more than a dozen places sent me information to get my business. But when I called Blue Cross, the customer service person didn’t just want my business, she wanted to help! She was easy to work with, explained my options and didn’t try to sell me anything I didn’t want. I received exactly the plan I was looking for, and dental coverage too. The whole experience was just great.
