Introduction

Medicare Made Clear provides simple information and clear answers about Medicare insurance plans and choices for current and future beneficiaries, retirees, caregivers and health care providers.

If you or someone you know is eligible for Medicare, now may be the time to get the information you need to make an informed decision. Choosing Medicare coverage doesn't have to be hard, but it's important to review your health care needs and finances before making a selection. We're here to help you understand your Medicare plan choices and find a plan that's right for you.

Medicare Made Clear from UnitedHealthcare® helps keep you informed about Medicare. Follow us on Facebook & Twitter to stay current with news and updates about Medicare.

Plans are insured through UnitedHealthcare Insurance Company or one of its affiliated companies, a Medicare Advantage organization with a Medicare contract and a Medicare-approved Part D sponsor. Enrollment in the plan depends on the plan’s contract renewal with Medicare.
