Whether through Original Medicare (Parts A and B), Medicare Advantage, or the prescription drug benefit (Part D), 313,368 beneficiaries in Maine continue to have access to improved benefits thanks to the Affordable Care Act, including:

Certain preventive benefits including certain cancer screenings are available at no cost to beneficiaries when provided by qualified and participating health professionals. The annual wellness visit provides beneficiaries with the opportunity to sit down with their doctor to discuss their health care needs and the best ways to stay healthy.
