Medicare 2013: What You Need to Know

       “Ask anyone turning 65 about Medicare and, more likely than not, they will say it is confusing and complicated. There are Parts A and B of Original Medicare, and Medigap plans to supplement them. Part D, prescription drug plans with the infamous “donut hole” has special rules. Part C, known as Medicare Advantage, typically combines Parts A, B and D into one plan. From the Initial Enrollment Period to the Annual Enrollment Period, the rules are very complex.
       The Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) of the Council on Aging Silicon Valley can help current and prospective Medicare beneficiaries as well as family members or caregivers unravel the mysteries and wonders of Medicare.
