When to Enroll in Medicare

The first step to Medicare is knowing when to enroll. There are specific enrollment periods you need to be aware of to avoid late enrollment penalties. The Initial Enrollment Period starts three months before you turn 65 and continues until three months after your birthday.

Types of Medicare Plans

Medicare comes in several parts: Part A for hospital care, Part B for medical services, Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, and Part D for prescription drugs. Understanding these parts is crucial for selecting the right plan for your healthcare needs.


Part A

Hospital insurance that covers inpatient stays, hospice, and home healthcare services.


Part B

Medical insurance that covers outpatient care, doctor visits, and preventive services.


Part D

Prescription drug coverage that works in conjunction with Original Medicare.

Medicare Advantage: What You Need to Know

Medicare Advantage, or Part C, is an all-in-one alternative to Original Medicare. These plans often include added benefits like vision, dental, and prescription drug coverage. For more information, reach out to us at 909-543-1818.

Costs and Budgeting

Medicare isn't entirely free. Premiums, deductibles, and co-payments are costs you should be prepared for. To get a better understanding of your potential financial commitment, don't hesitate to call Rick Plata Insurance Agency at 909-543-1818.

Medigap: Supplemental Coverage

If you're concerned about out-of-pocket costs, a Medigap policy can help fill the gaps. Medigap plans cover things that Original Medicare does not, like copayments and deductibles.
