How do i get medicare parts A & B

https://www.medicare.gov/sign-up-change-plans/how-do-i-get-parts-a-b Some people get Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) automatically and other people have to sign up for it. In most cases, it depends on whether you’re getting Social Security benefits.

Hospital

You usually don’t pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) coverage if you or your spouse paid Medicare taxes for a certain amount of time while working.

Doctor

Some people automatically get Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance), and some people need to sign up for Part B. If you don’t sign up for Part B when you’re first eligible, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty.The standard Part B premium amount in 2021 is $148.50. Most people pay the standard Part B premium amount. If your modified adjusted gross income as reported on your IRS tax return from 2 years ago is above a certain amount, you’ll pay the standard premium amount and an Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount (IRMAA). IRMAA is an extra charge added to your premium.

Health Care

Medicare Advantage Plans are another way to get your Medicare Part A and Part B coverage. Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” are offered by Medicare-approved private companies that must follow rules set by Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans include drug coverage (Part D).

Prescription

All plans must cover a wide range of prescription drugs that people with Medicare take, including most drugs in certain protected classes. Information about a plan’s list of covered drugs (called a “formulary”) varies by health plans. Many Medicare drug plans and Medicare health plans with drug coverage place drugs into different levels called “tiers” on their formularies. Drugs in each tier have a different cost. For example, a drug in a lower tier will generally cost you less than a drug in a higher tier.
