Medicare Basics

Three months before you turn 65, you can enroll in Original Medicare Parts A and B through Social Security. Original Medicare helps pay for hospital stays and doctor’s visits, but it doesn’t cover everything. That’s why many people buy additional Medicare insurance. 

That’s where Alight comes in. Through Alight, you can shop for Medicare plans and get personalized, unbiased guidance, making sure you find the best plan to meet your needs. 

Types of Plans

There are three main types of Medicare plans: Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, and prescription drug plans.

 

Medicare Advantage

Also known as Part C, Medicare Advantage plans cover the same services as Original Medicare Parts A and B and often includes prescription drug coverage. Some plans offer additional benefits like dental, vision and hearing care. These plans can be a good value if you’re looking for all-in-one medical and drug coverage with low or $0 premiums.

Medicare Supplement

Sometimes called Medigap, Medicare Supplement plans help pay some of the out-of-pockets costs that aren’t covered by Original Medicare, like copays, coinsurance and deductibles. With this option, most people buy two separate plans — a Medicare Supplement plan for medical expenses and a prescription drug plan for medications.

Prescription drug plan

Having a prescription drug plan (also called Part D) provides protection against high drug costs. You can add a prescription drug plan to your Original Medicare plan or combine it with a Medicare Supplement plan.
 

Watch: Make sure your prescription drugs are covered
 

Shop and Enroll

When you're ready to shop for a plan, Alight's plan recommendation tool can help you quickly sort through a wide range of options. You can also compare coverage, cost and enroll online.

You can learn more about Medicare and the types of plans available in Alight’s Medicare guide

HRA

If you’re eligible for a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), you can pay for expenses such as premiums, copays and coinsurance, and then get reimbursed for those expenses from your HRA. You'll manage your HRA through Alight.

To learn more about the AT&T Medicare-Eligible Health Reimbursement Account Program, view the Summary Plan Description. Sign in with your AT&T Benefits Center user name and password and select Plan Docs and Legal Notices, then Health & Welfare Summaries and Legal Information.

The packet you receive in the mail includes a prescheduled appointment with an Alight licensed Benefits Advisor. A Benefits Advisor offers unbiased guidance and can answer your questions and help you find coverage that fits your needs.

Note: You must confirm your appointment at least five days before the appointment, or a Benefits Advisor cannot meet with you.
