Medicare is the largest health insurance program offered by the U.S. government, serving more than 57 million Americans.1 There are two main ways to get your Medicare coverage. You can get Original Medicare directly from the U.S. government, buying additional coverage as needed, or you can opt for a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan from a private insurer. MA plans are required to provide coverage that, at minimum, matches the coverage provided by Original Medicare.
Covered through the federal government
Offered through a private insurer like Humana
Offered through a private insurer like Humana for those who want to supplement their Medicare Parts A & B
All Medicare Advantage plans include hospital and medical coverage. Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans combine hospital, medical, AND prescription drug coverage- all in one easy-to-manage plan
Instead of paying doctors, hospitals, and other providers directly, the federal government pays private insurers like Humana to administer your plan.
Private insurers compete for your business by offering extra programs and resources that support your best health. For example, Many of Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans offer extras like the following at no additional cost to members:
Registered nurses are available by phone 24/7
Resources for those who care for others

Taking some time to think about your recent healthcare history may help you identify what you want and need the most from your Medicare plan. Here are some things you may want to consider:
Do you want to keep your current doctor? Does he or she accept Medicare patients?
Do you take prescription drugs every day? Sometimes? Hardly ever?
Do you prefer a slightly higher premium – but more predictable costs overall?
Are you interested in extras like fitness programs or phone access to a registered nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week?
Are you planning to travel and need coverage that travels with you?
