Get to Know Medicare Parts A, B, C and Medicare Supplement Plan

Every person who has had taxes deducted from his or her paycheck has paid into the Medicare fund pool. On a typical paycheck, the worker would see something like “FICA-HI.” The “HI” stands for health insurance. The employer also pays into this Medicare health insurance fund. Seniors are advised to enroll in a Illinois Medicare Supplement Plan to cover what Medicare Parts A & B don’t.

Part A of Medicare is no charge and is basic hospitalization coverage. Part B, for outpatient services, is highly recommended but not required. If a person waits to enroll in Part B, once enrolled, there may be a penalty assessed on the monthly premium for every 12-month period not enrolled. This penalty will remain in effect the entire time that the retiree is enrolled in Part B.

Part C is designed to be the equivalent of Parts A and B. When enrolled in a Part C or better known as Medicare Advantage, these plans are designed to take place or Parts A and B. Some plans may pay a portion of prescription drug costs but not all of them. Part D is for prescription drug coverage. These plans are cheaper in cost but don’t cover as much as Medicare Supplemental insurance does.
