Selecting Medicare coverage can be overwhelming. DuPage Medical Group wants you to understand your options so that you can make the best choice for you and your health. For patients who are turning 65, DMG offers free monthly sessions that provide a comprehensive look at the benefits provided by both Medicare and Medicare Advantage.
In evaluating what is the best option for you, here are some things to consider:
- How important is it to be able to continue seeing my current primary care physician?
- Are my prescriptions covered?
- Is my preferred pharmacy in-network?
- Can I get the care I want for a cost I can afford?
- Does this plan include the benefits that are most important to me?
Additional information about Medicare options, including what is covered under Medicare Parts A and B, may be found at www.medicare.gov
At DuPage Medical Group, we believe Medicare Advantage plans are better able to support coordinated and preventive care, which is especially important for seniors. To help you learn more about Medicare Advantage so that you can decide whether Medicare Advantage meets your individual needs, DuPage Medical Group has arranged through third party agencies to conduct these sessions that provide a comprehensive look at options for our seniors. To sign up, please visit our “Classes and Events” page.
