Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C are Medicare supplement plans that are sold by private companies with the approval of state and federal regulators and must follow the same guidelines as standard Medicare. Depending on where you live, the options available to you may vary. Clear Spring Health is here to help you find what options are available to you, based on where you live.
In North Carolina, U.S. citizens can qualify for Medicare if they meet the following requirements:
Medicare Part D provides optional prescription drug coverage to everyone with Medicare. Joining a prescription drug coverage plan when you’re first eligible can prevent you from having to pay a late enrollment penalty should you decide to sign up at a later date.
In 2020 North Carolinians have access to 28 different Medicare Part D plans across 11 different providers. Clear Spring Health offers two different Part D plans.
Whether you’re having difficulty understanding the terms, need a hand with choosing a plan that fits your needs, or just want to find assistance in paying for your Medicare, help is available to you. Below you’ll find local North Carolina resources that can help you with most Medicare problems.
