Understanding Medicare and what it covers

Understanding Medicare and what it covers

Medicare is the federal insurance program for people age 65 or older and for some people with certain illnesses or disabilities.

 

Did you know Medicare is made up of four parts? Each one covers various types of care and services. Learn more about the ABCs of Medicare

 

You can apply for Medicare online at ssa.gov, or enroll at your local Social Security office.

 

${company} recommends enrolling in Medicare as early as possible to avoid a delay in the start of your Medicare coverage, which could result in out-of-pocket expenses.

Enrolling in Medicare

Enrolling in Medicare

For most people, the Medicare enrollment period opens three months before they turn 65 and ends three months after their birthday. For example, if your 65th birthday falls in May, you can join Medicare between February and August of that year.  

 

Depending on your situation, you may be automatically enrolled in Original Medicare (Parts A and B).

Getting to know the Medicare Advantage plan

Getting to know the Medicare Advantage plan

MTA New York City Transit and Aetna have teamed up to design a health plan just for you.

 

With Aetna Medicare Advantage, you get:

 

  • Predictable, lower costs than your current plan and a yearly limit on out-of-pocket expenses
  • Original Medicare Parts A and B coverage —  so you’ll continue to pay your Part B premium
  • Services to complement your doctors’ care —  at no extra cost to you
  • Continued access to your doctors — use any provider who accepts Medicare and agrees to accept the Aetna plan before treating you

 

If your doctor isn’t in Aetna’s nationwide network, it’s not usually a problem — you can call us and we’ll be happy to reach out to them for you. You don’t need a referral to see a specialist.
