Medicare provides health insurance coverage for more than 2.7 million Texans age 65 and older and those with permanent disabilities. Nearly 50 million patients nationwide rely on Medicare for their health care. Even with Medicare, patients have to make many critical decisions about their health care and insurance coverage. The Kaiser Family Foundation’s new Talking About Medicare guide helps patients navigate the program. It provides information about drug plan options, supplemental insurance, and private Medicare Advantage plans to help seniors make informed decisions about their Medicare coverage.
