FACT: It’s illegal to charge you different prices for the same Medicare plan. The Medicare Give Back Benefit is based on region, assistance is based on factors like income and late penalties.

You can shop around for benefits, but premium and cost-sharing amounts don’t change based on where you shop for a given plan.
