I'm Eligible for Medicare
Cedars-Sinai has served the needs of Medicare beneficiaries since the program began in 1966. Cedars-Sinai is included in both traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans. Coverage also is available for people who have both Medicare and Medi-Cal (dual eligible).
If you have traditional or original Medicare (Part A and/or B), including Medicare supplement insurance (Medigap) plans, you will have coverage for care from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Marina Del Rey Hospital and many of our doctors.
Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage or a Medicare Health plan, is purchased from a private insurance company and typically organized like an HMO or PPO insurance plan.
Cedars-Sinai participates in the following Medicare Advantage plans:

If you are eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal, you should do one of two things to ensure coverage for Cedars-Sinai:
- Opt out of Cal MediConnect and keep the same fee-for-service Medicare and Medi-Cal benefits that you already have, or
- Enroll in the Cal MediConnect program through one of the following:
- Anthem Blue Cross Cal MediConnect Plan
