Frequently Asked Questions

Medicare can be confusing. Listed below are a few frequently asked questions and answers to help you navigate the Medicare program and learn about your coverage options.

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for:

  • People 65 and older.
  • Those younger than 65 with certain disabilities or End-Stage Renal Disease.

U.S. citizens and permanent legal residents of at least 5 continuous years are eligible for Medicare.

There are 4 parts of Medicare: Part A, Part B, Part C and Part D.

What is Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage plans (also called Medicare Part C) are private health insurance plans. They provide the same coverage as Medicare Part A and Part B. And they may include additional coverage for prescription drugs, vision, dental and wellness programs.

Am I eligible for Medicare Advantage?

To qualify for a Medicare Advantage plan, you must meet two requirements. First, you must have both Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B. Second, you must live in the service area for a particular Medicare Advantage plan that is accepting new users. To find out if you're eligible, call a licensed insurance agent at 1-800-891-6309, TTY: 711, 24/7. They can review your eligibility and see if you're eligible for an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan.
