Is medicare mandatory?
For individuals enrolling in Medicare after their Initial Enrollment Period, enrollment is not mandatory. However, if you do not enroll in any part of Medicare during your Initial Enrollment Period, or within the three-month period that begins on the date you first become eligible for Medicare, you may need to pay a late enrollment penalty unless you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period with creditable employer coverage.
What's the difference between a medicare advantage HMO and PPO?

Medicare Advantage Plans are offered by private companies that must follow rules set by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you’ll still have Medicare but you’ll get most of your Part A and Part B coverage from your Medicare Advantage Plan, not Original Medicare. Part C plans also offer extra benefits, like vision care or dental coverage.
