New to Medicare

New to Medicare in Arkansas

Your 65th birthday marks a special occasion – you are now eligible to apply for Medicare!

However, the choices that are now available to you can be confusing.

How does a Supplement differ from an Advantage Plan? When can I enroll? How long am I guaranteed issue? Do I need Part D for my prescriptions? How much will this cost me?

At MediSource, we will guide you through the entire process from your Medicare enrollment to adding important coverage like Medicare Supplements, Medicare Advantage Plans, and/or a Part D prescription drug plan.

We represent you first – not the carriers. As an independent agency, we are able to find you the best price in the market for the product that fits your needs and budget.

As you learn more about Medicare, you’ll hear terms like Guaranteed Issue, Aging In, and Annual Enrollment Period. All of these are very beneficial to you, but you must understand how they apply to you and your unique situation. Our service includes no obligation or fees, so take advantage of our consultative services and secure your healthcare and financial future.

There are a couple things you should do to prepare for your Medicare enrollment, and it’s best to do them at least three months in advance of your 65th birthday. Remember that you can call us at any time, and we’ll guide you through the process.

Check with your employer’s group plan.

Are currently employed or receiving health benefits from a previous employer or another group?

If so, check with them to find out what their policy is regarding employees/retirees and their families once you turn 65. Many employers and other group plans discontinue health insurance once you are eligible for Medicare.

Enroll in Medicare Part B.

If you have been working, you are probably already enrolled in Part A (hospital insurance). However, unless you are already receiving Social Security benefits, you will need to enroll in Part B (medical insurance).

To do this, simply call your Social Security office. You can also do this online at Once you visit that website, click on “Medicare Enrollment.”
