Medicare and You Handbook 2021

Medicare & You is a handbook published each year by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

It explains Medicare-covered services and the costs associated with Original Medicare for the coming year. Each Medicare beneficiary is mailed a copy of Medicare & You in the early fall, whether they have Original Medicare or are on a Medicare Advantage Plan.

If you did not receive a handbook, you can call 1-800-MEDICARE to request a copy, or click here.
