When is Open Enrollment?

Breaking Down Original Medicare, Part D, and Medicare Supplement
Administered by the federal government. "Original Medicare" is made up of Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance). Those with Original Medicare may opt to add additional prescription drug coverage (Part D).
Prescription drug coverage, or Part D, is provided by private insurance companies and is considered supplemental to Original Medicare. There are many different drug plans to choose from, and each has its own list of covered prescriptions (also known as a formulary). Drug plans place drugs into "tiers" that determine how much you will pay.
Medicare Supplement Part C
Medicare beneficiaries may also choose Plan C or Medicare Supplement. Offered by private insurance companies, a Medicare Supplement or Plan C helps cover what Medicare A and B doesn’t.
