A Comprehensive Overview
Medicare is a federal program designed to provide health insurance for people aged 65 and older, as well as certain younger individuals with disabilities or specific health conditions like End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
Medicare is broken down into four different parts, each covering different aspects of healthcare:
Medicare Part A
Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.Read More
Medicare Part B
Part B covers certain doctors' services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.Read More
Medicare Part C
A type of Medicare health plan offered by private companies that contract with Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans provide all of your Part A and Part B benefits and often include additional benefits like vision, dental, and hearing coverage.Read More
Medicare Part D
(Prescription Drug Coverage)
Part D adds prescription drug coverage to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans.Read More
It’s essential to understand that Original Medicare doesn't cover everything. For instance, long-term care, most dental care, eye examinations related to prescription glasses, and more are not covered. That's where Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap) can come into play to help cover some remaining healthcare costs.
