Do I have a choice in how I get my Medicare health and prescription drug coverage?

En español | Medicare gives you a lot of choice. You can receive your benefits through the original Medicare fee-for-service program or through a variety of Medicare Advantage plans that offer managed care. Part D prescription drug coverage can be accessed either through “stand-alone” plans or through Medicare Advantage plans that offer Part D coverage.

Having plenty of choice means that you must make decisions. In particular it means comparing the private Medicare Advantage or Part D drug plans in your area to decide which one best meets your own needs and preferences. The best way of doing that is by using the online plan finder program on Medicare’s website, at This program provides the detail you need to compare coverage and costs among many plans.
