Medicare Facts You Should Know

  • The Affordable Care Act/Connect for Health Colorado Health Colorado is not for people with Medicare. If you have Medicare, you will continue to receive the same health care benefits you have had in the past.
  • The shingles vaccine is covered as a preventive service under Medicare Part D (prescription drug plan). If you are enrolled in a Part D plan either as an addition to Original Medicare A and B, or as part of a Medicare Advantage/Health plan (like an HMO or PPO plan), there is no copay or cost to you.
  • Medicare does not generally pay for long-term care, routine dental or eye care, dentures, cosmetic surgery, acupuncture, hearing aids and exams for fitting them, as well as routine foot care.
  • Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services can help answer questions about Medicare Savings Programs for cost savings help for beneficiaries who qualify. For more information call 303-441-1000.
