Question What is a Medicare Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)?

Answer Medicare beneficiaries have a choice of whether to receive Medicare benefits through traditional Medicare or a managed care plan (if one is available where they live). No matter which they choose, they still have Medicare. If they join a Medicare HMO, they will not need Medigap. Learn more about Medicare HMOs, and the difference between traditional fee-for-service Medicare and Medicare HMOs before you make a choice.
