Original Medicare is comprised of two parts:
Medicare pays a fee for your care directly to the doctors and hospitals you visit.
Original Medicare has no limit to your out-of-pocket costs.
U.S. citizens and legal residents. (Legal residents must live in the U.S. for the 5 years just before applying for Medicare.)
You Must also meet one of the following:
People who pay a Part A premium (most don’t) could pay an additional 10% of the premium amount. The penalty is charged every month for twice the number of years enrollment was delayed.
You could pay an additional 10% of the premium amount for each full 12-month period enrollment is delayed. The penalty is charged every month for as long as you have Part B.
You could pay an additional 1% of the average Part D premium for each month you delay enrollment. The penalty is charged every month for as long as you’re enrolled in Part D.
Plans are insured or covered by a Medicare Advantage (HMO, PPO, and PFFS) organization with a Medicare contract and/or a Medicare-approved Part D sponsor. We do not offer every plan in your area. Please contact medicare.gov or 1-800-Medicare to get information on all your options.
