By the numbers

Medicare provides health benefits to seniors over 65 and certain disabled individuals under 65 in Georgia. To be eligible, you must be an American citizen or legal permanent resident of at least five continuous years. Below are more facts on Medicare enrollment in Georgia:

  • Georgia beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B: 1,023,363
  • Medicare beneficiaries in Georgia with Medicare Part C: 480,178
  • Total number of Medicare beneficiaries in Georgia: 1, 503,541
  • Medicare beneficiaries in Georgia with Medicare Part D: 1,067,898

Medicare Advantage plans and Prescription Drug Plan sponsors must have a contract with Medicare in order to sell Medicare insurance plans (such as a Medicare HMO or a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan). Depending on the terms of the contract between the plan and Medicare, not every plan is available statewide or in all service areas. Each year, the plan must renew their contract with Medicare, so the availability of a plan in a specific service area is subject to change as a result of the annual contract renewal.

Medicare resources in Georgia

For beneficiaries in Georgia, there are Medicare resources available to help answer their questions about benefits, plans, and other Medicare-related topics.

Their services are free and supported in part by a grant from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
