Medicare Enrollment: Enrolling in Original Medicare


Many people are unsure how to go about the Medicare enrollment process due to the fact that there are so many different choices and plans to possibly enroll in.  While there are multiple options available to you during Medicare enrollment it is relatively easy to decipher which is best for you.  However, if you cannot make the decision and don’t choose which way to go during Medicare enrollment your mind will be made up for you.

If you don’t enroll in a plan during Medicare enrollment you will automatically be enrolled in “Original” Medicare.  Here is what you should know about original Medicare:

  1. You have the right to go to any doctor that you so choose if you choose to go with Original Medicare during Medicare enrollment.
  2. If you do not enroll in Medicare Part D during Medicare enrollment you will not have any coverage for prescription drugs.
  3. You do not have to choose a primary care doctor or get a referral to see a specialist if you choose Original Medicare during Medicare enrollment.
  4. If you don’t have another source of insurance to go along with Original Medicare then you may want to sign up for supplement insurance to go along with your insurance during Medicare enrollment.
