There’s a lot to learn about Medicare. We’re here to help you understand the Medicare basics, your different coverage options, enrollment and more. Through helpful resources and tools, discover the information you need to make confident Medicare decisions.


Medicare is individual health insurance offered to U.S. citizens and other eligible individuals based on age, disability or qualifying medical condition. Medicare coverage includes Medicare Part A and Part B (Original Medicare) offered by the federal government, and Medicare Advantage (Part C) and Part D prescription drug coverage, which are offered by private insurance companies. Medicare supplement insurance (Medigap) plans are also offered by private insurance companies and help pay for some out-of-pocket expenses that Medicare Part A and Part B don’t pay.

What is Medicare?

The federal health insurance program for:

  • People who are 65 or older
  • Certain younger people with disabilities
  • People with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD)


What are the parts of Medicare?

The different parts of Medicare help cover specific services:

  • Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)
    Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)
    Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
  • Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage)
    Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs (including many recommended shots or vaccines).


How does Medicare work?

With Medicare, you have options in how you get your coverage. Once you enroll, you’ll need to decide how you’ll get your Medicare coverage.

Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A

Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). You pay for services as you get them. When you get services, you’ll pay a 

deductible at the start of each year, and you usually pay 20% of the cost of the Medicare-approved service, called coinsurance. If you want drug coverage, you can add a separate drug plan (Part D).Original Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the cost for covered health care services and supplies. A  Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. Some Medigap policies also cover services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like emergency medical care  when you travel outside the U.S.


Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage is Medicare-approved plan from a private company that offers an alternative to Original Medicare for your health and drug coverage. These “bundled” plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D. Plans may offer some extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover — like vision, hearing, and dental services. Medicare Advantage Plans have yearly contracts with Medicare and must follow Medicare’s coverage rules. The plan must notify you about any changes before the start of the next enrollment year.

Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D)

Medicare drug coverage helps pay for prescription drugs you need. To get Medicare drug coverage, you must join a Medicare-approved plan that offers drug coverage (this includes Medicare drug plans and Medicare Advantage Plans with drug coverage).

As a senior researching and trying to learn about all the nuances of the Medicare plans and jargon. I think nothing is better than to have an agent you can trust to guide you through all of this. And that is what we did. Chris did all the researches and report back to us as to which ones out of several he had picked, that is more suitable for the two of us. And once we have chosen the plan we like, he went ahead and help us sign up online as we follow through on our computer screen via zoom. And if we have any questions, Chris is quick to have the answer for us. We are delighted to share this experience with everyone who is looking for help with your Medicare questions and signup. And don't forget, you don't have to pay anything extra to Chris, the Insurance agent. The Insurance carrier you picked will take care of that part. Good luck.

Hi EveryoneChris Dewey is the best Medicare Insurance Agent that you will ever find. He thinks long-term and gets you the best insurance company with the lowest rates, and only recommends them if that have a proven track record of maintaining these low rates. Medico in South Carolina is one perfect example. Very competitive rates today with small increases expected in the future. He recommends the program that is best for you, not the one that pays the highest commission. Remember, Medicare part N must be the same exact program no matter which insurance company is doing the underwriting - the US government sets the definitive rules that all insurance carriers must adhere to. Bottom line - chose Medicare Part N from the insurance company with the lowest rates. Chris will help you do that.One other great move that Chris did for this current calendar year of 2024, was move me out of Aetna Part D Drug into Wellcare because Aetna raised there premium for 2024 and Wellcare costs only $0.50 premium per month for coverage that I believe will be even better. Chris did what was best for the customer, not for his wallet. Great job and thanks.

My husband and I have been with Chris @ Mayriver Medicare over 5 years now! The reason why we have stayed with Chris is because he chose the correct Medicare Supplement for both of us based on our income and the amount we could allow in having the Medicare Supplement and a stand alone Prescription plan....in addition to the Life Insurance plans he can write also! Everything he does, he does with the customer in mind and their needs first and foremost! May River Medicare is CUSTOMER FIRST based! Our Medicare Supplement plan premium is still at a great rate. It is so simple---all you do is meet the Deductible (which as we all know will change a little every year) and after that you do not have to worry about receiving a BIG 20% Bill from the providers! We already know what our bill will be after we meet the deductible---for PLAN N! I have learned what a difference the choice between Plan G and Plan N can be...$$$ wise! And the BILL I am talking about is the excess charge the DR can charge, which runs anywhere from $0.00 up to $20!!! It never goes above that amount! That's how I know what our bills will be IF the DR charges the excess charge! It feels great knowing you already know what the amount of your bill will be without even opening the envelope!! Here is our personal experience example: one year ago this past March, my husband had Ankle surgery---well, in March 2022 he lacked just a small amount meeting his Medical deductible---of course for surgery clearance he had to go through having his heart, lungs ( oxygen output), because he is a smoker, etc...he met is deductible with the heart Dr! When we receive the EOB and I saw the DRs charges and the hospital charges (for using the operating room), as an outpatient (charge was $37,000 plus!) and that was for the hospital alone! I went to my husband and said look! This is why we have a Medicare Supplement Plan N!If it were not for us having the ability to be on a Supplement plan, we would be paying 20% charges to every provider we see! That is the difference between Medicare Supplements (Medi Gap) plans and Medicare Advantage plans----the Out of Pocket Costs! Now who can predict what their bill will be after this kind of surgery??? And Providers costs are not going to get lower either!! Bottom line, if you need a good medical plan and can make room in your budget to pay for the Medicare Supplement plan and a great prescription plan to fill the gap for your medications---call Chris Dewey @ May River Medicare in Bluffton, SC!! or go online and Request a quote!!! Do it today!!
