What Medicare costs

Why choosing a Medicare plan is like buying a car

A senior asks for help at the front desk of a medical office.

Understanding “price” vs. “cost”

It all comes down to options—lots of options. And, while some may affect your price up front, other options may help lower your overall cost down the road. For example, a Medicare plan with affordable copays is like a car that gets great mileage. You may pay a little more up front, but you may save money when you use it.
