Each year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) releases a handbook titled Medicare & You. The handbook, which is made available to all current and future Medicare beneficiaries, is published in the fall for the upcoming year.
Medicare & You 2019 is available now. With this guide, you can review how to use the handbook to find the information you need, and you can even download your own copy.
If you are currently enrolled in Medicare, you should have received a printed copy of Medicare & You 2019 by the end of October, 2018. If you have not received your copy, please call 1-800-633-4227 to request one.
Whether or not you are enrolled in Medicare, you may view an electronic version of Medicare & You 2019 (made available by Medicare.gov), and you can download it if you wish.
Medicare & You 2019 is 120 pages long, but here is a brief summary of what you can expect to find in the guide.
The better you understand Medicare, the more effectively you may be able to use your benefits. Use Medicare & You 2019 to learn the ins and outs of the Medicare program or call 1-800-MEDICARE with any questions.
