About Medicare

We often hear Medicare can be confusing. There are so many different parts, and what do all of these mean? We are here to help you understand how Medicare works and help you find the best option that will fit your personal needs.

When you become eligible for Original Medicare, you have important choices to make. One of the first decisions is to decide if you will have just Original Medicare or purchase additional coverage such as a Medicare Advantage plan.
With Original Medicare – you may be responsible for Deductibles, Coinsurance and Copays and will have limitations on what is covered, for instance things like routine vision, dental, hearing and prescription drugs may not be covered. 

Health New England Medicare Advantage

By choosing a Medicare Advantage plan through a private health plan, like Health New England, you will be covered for all services that would have been covered under Original Medicare – such as hospital, physician visits, laboratory services, x-rays etc., in addition to some services that aren’t covered by Original Medicare like routine vision and hearing exams, health and wellness programs, dental, hearing aids and so much more. 

Health New England Medicare Advantage is a top-rated health insurance plan by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. The Medicare Plan ratings measure how well Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans perform in different categories.

With a Health New England Medicare Advantage plan, you will obtain both your medical coverage and pharmacy coverage under one plan – which provides ease of use for you and your physician. In addition to excellent medical coverage, we are proud to offer you additional benefits to help you manage your health, that may include allowances for vision, dental and Fitness center/Weight Watchers/Over-the-Counter Items.
