If you want additional health care coverage or need a hand paying for expenses that aren't covered by Original Medicare, you have options! Together, Direct Auto Insurance in Hot Springs and Medicare.org are helping Arkansas Medicare beneficiaries research, compare plans, buy, and enroll in the right health insurance plan for their needs.

Even though the federal Medicare health insurance program, which consists of Part A and B, helps pay for a variety of medical costs, there can still be gaps in coverage. Unless you have supplemental coverage, you will have to pay out of pocket for certain services like prescription drug coverage, coinsurance, copayments, deductibles, dental, and vision care.

If you're just now aging into Arkansas Medicare or are reaching eligibility due to a disability, you have choices when it comes to receiving health benefits. For instance, you can choose to receive your benefits from either Original Medicare or through a Medicare Advantage Plan. If you have already enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and/or B, you might still be able to make changes to your AR health insurance coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th).

Wondering if Medicare.org and Direct Auto can help you? As long as you're eligible for Arkansas Medicare insurance, we can! Medicare is generally available to people who are 65 or older and meet citizenship and residency requirements; are under 65 with certain disabilities; or are of any age with End-Stage Renal Disease.
