Can Medicare Cover Spouse? (Clinton Twp, MI)

Hi, this is Maureen. Stay tuned for another insurance tidbit. I’ll be honest here. Medicare coverage can be confusing. And one common question people ask is whether or not their spouse can be covered under their Medicare plan. So the short answer is no, a person qualifies for Medicare once they reach 65 or if they have a specific disability, um your Medicare plan is for you and it’s for you alone. Also, since it’s pretty unlikely that you and your spouse were both born in the same month of the same year, one of you will qualify for Medicare before the other. However, you can purchase a Medic Gap and Medicare Advantage plans to cover both you and your spouse and also help pay for some things that Medicare might not cover. Now, I just want to remind you though that before making any choice on either a Medic Gap or Medicare Advantage plan, make sure that you sit down with your insurance agent and review all of the facts.
