Medicare: The Official U. S. Government Site for Medicare Information

The Health Care Financing Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services provides this site--a consumer gateway to information about Medicare, a national health insurance program that covers 37 million Americans, mostly over age 65. Current highlights include a managed care section that contains Medicare Compare, an interactive database that allows users to compare (according to zip code or state) the benefits offered by Medicare managed care providers. Medicare Compare can also be downloaded as a Microsoft Access Database. The managed care section also contains a glossary of terms, frequently asked questions and their answers, and instructions on how to enroll and disenroll in a managed care plan. Users can refer to the overall site for general information on the Medicare program, fraud and abuse, and state contact lists, among other features.
