Medicare and the Marketplace

If you have Medicare

Medicare isn’t part of the Health Insurance Marketplace®, so if you have Medicare coverage now you don’t need to do anything.
The Marketplace won’t affect your Medicare choices or benefits. No matter how you get Medicare, whether through Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO), you won’t have to make any changes.
The Marketplace doesn’t offer Medicare supplement (Medigap) insurance or Part D drug plans.

Expanded Medicare benefits for preventive care, drug coverage

  • Medicare benefits have expanded under the health care law – things like free preventive benefits, cancer screenings, and an annual wellness visit.
  • You can also save money if you’re in the 
     with discounts on brand-name prescription drugs.
