Medicare Plans

Once you enroll in Medicare Parts A&B you become eligible for different types of Medicare plans. The Town offers three Advantage/Replacement Plans, two Medicare Wrap Plans, and two Medicare Supplement Plans. The benefits and coverage of these plans vary greatly so be sure to look them over closely and choose which plan best suits your needs. The premiums are per person and it is not necessary for spouses to enroll in the same plan. All plans do cover the subscriber at the nearest hospital in emergency situations.

Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Plans provide the most versatility allowing the subscriber to receive services anywhere Medicare is accepted. A primary care physician is not necessary and the subscriber can live anywhere in the United States or Puerto Rico. The insurance card and the Medicare card should be presented when services are received. Medicare pays first and the insurance "supplements" the Medicare coverage.

Medicare Wrap Plans


With Medicare Wrap Plans the subscriber must present the Medicare card and the insurance card when services are received. Wraps provide a network of providers where a subscriber may receive services. The insurance plan "wraps" around the Medicare and the subscriber usually pays a co-pay for covered services received from in-network providers. The subscriber is responsible for any portion Medicare does not cover for services received out of the plan network. The subscriber must have a primary care physician and a primary residence within the network area.

Medicare Replacement Plans

 These plans provide a limited network of providers where the subscriber can receive services. The premiums for these plans tend to be lower and the subscriber is responsible for co-pays that get paid as services are received. These plans tend to offer wellness benefits for eyeglasses, hearing aids, and limited dental coverage. This coverage "replaces" Medicare Parts A&B and if enrolled in one of these plans, the Medicare card should be put away and only the insurance card should be presented when services are received. The subscriber must have a primary care physician and a primary residence within the network area. The rates and benefits of these plans renew annually on the January 1.
