Under­stand­ing Medicare 

We know that choos­ing the right Medicare plan can feel over­whelm­ing. Under­stand­ing your cov­er­age options and how they affect your health is impor­tant, and we encour­age you to explore all of your Medicare cov­er­age options, includ­ing Medicare Advantage.

To under­stand which plans offer you the ben­e­fits and pre­scrip­tion cov­er­age you need, we rec­om­mend you speak with an inde­pen­dent, licensed agent. That agent can review your cur­rent plan with you as well as dis­cuss oth­er options that may be ben­e­fi­cial. If you do not have a licensed agent, The South Bend Clin­ic part­ners with the Integri­ty Medicare Helpline and Health­Mar­kets Insur­ance Agency to assist you!

Medicare Advan­tage

Medicare Sup­ple­ments

Pre­scrip­tion Drug Plans

Most Medicare Advan­tage Plans offer cov­er­age for things that aren’t cov­ered by Orig­i­nal Medicare, like vision, hear­ing, den­tal and well­ness pro­grams (like gym mem­ber­ships). Plans can also include a broad­er range extra ben­e­fits” than they have in the past, includ­ing ser­vices like trans­porta­tion to doc­tor vis­its, over-the-counter drugs, adult day-care ser­vices and oth­er health and care tools and resources need­ed to sup­port your well-being beyond our office walls.

*The South Bend Clin­ic physi­cians and employ­ees can­not answer ques­tions about spe­cif­ic ben­e­fits or make plan recommendations.
