Welcome to “Medicare & You” 2017
Since the health care law was passed, we’ve covered 20 million more Americans, while providing higher-quality care at reduced costs. And now, the Quality Payment Program builds on these improvements. To continue the progress, we’re focused on these goals to help protect Medicare and help you get the most out of your health care:
- Providing patient-driven health care
- Supporting delivery of the type of care we all want
- We stay committed to helping you get the best possible health care
Stay healthy with preventive services
Medicare pays for many preventive services that can help prevent illness or detect health problems early when they’re easier to treat. Ask your health care provider what services you need.
Sign up for Electronic Medicare Summary Notices (eMSNs)
e eMSN is an electronic version of your “Medicare Summary Notice” (the statement that lists all the services billed and what Medicare paid). If you choose eMSNs, you’ll get an email every month with a secure link to your MSN, instead of waiting 3 months for a paper copy in the mail.
Get help in the prescription drug coverage gap
If you reach the coverage gap in your Medicare prescription drug coverage, you’ll qualify for savings on brand-name and generic drugs.
