You can get additional information on Medicare benefits from Medicare at 1-800-999-1118 or online at www.medicare.gov.

 

You can also try the Social Security office at 1-800-772-1213 or online at www.socialsecurity.gov. Your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) is another great resource. They provide free counseling and education about Medicare plans and coverage.
