Where do I get my health insurance?

Once you turn 65 you are automatically eligible for Medicare coverage. That provides a base level of health insurance that will take care of a lot of your medical expenses, but probably not all. You will be required to pay a premium for some of your Medicare coverage, and you will probably want to purchase a private Medigap policy to cover all the costs that Medicare doesn't.
