My Memorial. My Medicare Choice.
Because the safety, health and well-being of our communities is a top priority for Memorial Healthcare System, it’s important to us that South Floridians have access to the care they need. Medicare is an option for those who qualify, and there are many Medicare plans to choose from that provide full in-network access to Memorial’s renowned patient- and family-centered care.
What is Medicare?
Medicare is the federal health insurance program that covers hospital and medical care, as well as prescription drugs, for people 65 or older, some younger people with disabilities and people with End-Stage Renal Disease.
There are two types of Medicare coverage:
- Original Medicare — Users of original Medicare often choose to have a supplemental policy with a private insurer to cover copays and deductibles that Medicare does not cover.
- Medicare Advantage – Plans are offered by Medicare-approved private companies that agree to follow Medicare rules. For the lowest costs, Memorial patients may choose a plan from an insurance provider we partner with.
During the Medicare open enrollment period each year, patients have an opportunity to choose a plan with a Memorial insurance partner and ensure full in-network healthcare coverage.
Open enrollment for 2021 health plans is October 15 through December 7, 2020.
Medicare can be complicated, but you have a choice. Visit Medicare.gov for more information on how to enroll and choosing the coverage you need for full in-network benefits with Memorial.
