When qualified for Medicare, you are automatically enrolled in Parts A and B, but must add the optional C and D plans yourself. Services covered by A and B are largely the same across the country, but in C and D, coverage can vary between states, even regions. Medicare doesn’t pay for everything. You pay a premium for coverage, deductibles for services and drugs, and coinsurance — similar to a co-pay.
