Who can I call to discuss my various Medicare options?

  • Discussing your Medicare options with someone knowledgeable can help you understand them completely and will help you to identify other important considerations when selecting a plan.
  • Many plans offer Medicare advisors who can answer questions about the plan and help you determine if the plan will meet your needs. Calling the plan before you enroll is a good way to determine how the plan will treat you in the future.
  • You can also speak with a licensed insurance broker/agent free of charge.  If you are losing employer-provided prescription drug coverage, your employer may make these services available to you. Additional resources you can turn to include Medicare.gov, the Medicare & You handbook and your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).
  • Medicare prohibits door-to-door sales without your previous permission or a scheduled appointment. If someone comes to your home without an appointment to sell a Medicare plan, turn him or her away and report the person to the Department for Health and Human Services.
  • Lastly, you can discuss your options with Medicare by calling at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users should call 1-877‑486‑2048.
