#1. T or F: You can be enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid at the same time.
Eligibility for Medicaid depends on your income, your assets, and what state you live in. Medicaid can help pay some of the out-of-pocket cost left by Medicare. Generally, you must enroll in Medicare even if you have state Medicaid.
#2. What is the maximum a person can pay each year for medical care while on Medicare?
With Original Medicare, there is no limit to the amount you pay for medical care each year. Medicare Advantage plans all have an out-of-pocket maximum. Medicare Supplement plans pay most of the deductibles and the 20% cost share portion not paid by Medicare. You can choose a Medicare Advantage plan or a Medicare Supplement, but not both.
#3. Which Medicare plan is likely to save me the most money?
Medicare insurance plans are designed to help help cover your medical costs while in retirement. According to the federal government, a person with a Medicare Advantage plan is likely to spent 25% less on medical care as compared to Original Medicare. A person with a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) will pay much less for medical care but will pay more in premiums for the Medicare Supplement and Part D.

#6. At what age do people typically become eleigible for Medicare?
Most people are eligible for Medicare at age 65. Individuals on Social Security Disability (SSDI) begin Medicare on the 25th month after they are eligible for Social Security Disability.
#7. Medicare Part A covers what benefits?
Medicare Part A is designed to cover inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing care, and hospice care. Medicare Part B helps pay for doctor visits, tests and out-patient procedures, ambulance services, and durable medical equipment.
#8. T or F: If you are on a Medicare Advantage plan, Medicare still pays 80% of your medical costs.
If you are on a Medicare Advantage plan, Medicare pays a premium to the insurance company. The insurance company sets co-payments for care within parameters set by the federal government.
#9. The Medicare "Donut Hole" is used to describe _______________.
Prescription drugs are covered by Part D and by many Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare sets a “total drug cost” limit each year, after which you pay 25% for the cost of most medications. This phase is known as the “Coverage Gap” or “Donut Hole”.
#10. Which of the following benefits are not covered by Original Medicare? (select three)
Select all that apply:
Gym memberships, dental benefits, hearing aids, vision benefits, and prescription drug benefits are not covered by Medicare. They are often extra benefits provided by Medicare Advantage plans. Those on Original Medical may purchase drug coverage (Part D) through an insurance company.
