Employer-Sponsored Medicare Plans

For employees and retirees

Many people are used to getting health insurance through an employer or group. Your employer may continue to offer coverage after you and your spouse become eligible for Medicare and enroll in Original Medicare Part A and Part B.

But Original Medicare is just basic hospital and medical coverage. Your employer may offer Medicare Advantage plans—also called Medicare Part C—or Medicare supplement insurance. These plans add benefits Medicare doesn’t cover and lower your out-of-pocket costs when you need care. The employer or group decides on which plans to offer, which determines the cost.
