In an effort to properly inform current and future Medicare beneficiaries of their coverage, options and rights, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) releases an annual guidebook called Medicare & You.
The 2018 edition of the book is 136 pages long, but we’ve compiled a brief overview of the book below, including the type of information it contains and how you can download your very own copy.
Beneficiaries who are already enrolled in Medicare should have received a printed copy of Medicare & You 2018 in the mail during the fall. The 2019 version will be distributed in the fall of 2018. If you did not receive your copy, or if you wish to obtain an extra printed copy, you may call 1-800-633-4227.

The guide can help provide a way for those who are nearing Medicare eligibility to prepare for their enrollment.
