Medicare provides healthcare coverage for eligible enrollees, and most individuals first become eligible when they turn 65. Medicare is made up of four parts, designed to cover specific healthcare services. The four parts of Medicare are Part A (hospital coverage), Part B (medical coverage), Part C (Medicare Advantage, sometimes with drug coverage) and Part D (prescription drug coverage). Get more details on the four parts of Medicare.
Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) is offered through the federal government. Medicare Advantage plans are offered through private insurance companies, like Bright Health. Unlike Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans have limits on how much you will pay out of pocket to help you budget and manage your healthcare expenses. Medicare Advantage plans from Bright Health include prescription drug coverage, and extra benefits like dental, vision, hearing, and fitness, often for no additional monthly premium.

Before you can enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you'll first need to be enrolled in Original Medicare (Parts A and B). Get more details from Medicare.gov .
When you turn 65 you have a 7-month Initial Enrollment Period (IEP): 3 months before your 65th birthday, your 65th birthday month, and 3 months following your 65th birthday month, to enroll without penalty. Get more details about enrollment periods.
Medicare Advantage plan costs can vary depending on the type of coverage you choose. Many individuals have a $0 monthly premium plan option available in their area. When considering a plan, make sure you review all plan costs, not just the monthly premium, to understand if it's the right plan for you.
Choosing Bright Health connects you to a Medicare Advantage plan that’s designed to take the surprises out of a typically complicated process. Learn more about our unique approach to coverage.
Outside of your IEP, outlined above, anyone who is eligible for Medicare can switch plans or enroll in a new plan each year during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) which begins each year on October 15. You may also qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP), which can happen at any time during the year.
