What is Medicare

medicare

In all states: Medicare is a health insurance Program for: people age 65 or older; people under age 65 with certain disabilities; people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant).

Medicare has Two Parts: Part A (Hospital Insurance) most people don’t have to pay for Part A; Part B (Medical Insurance) most people pay monthly for Part B insurance.
You can choose different ways to get the services covered by Medicare. Depending on where you live, you may have different choices. In most cases, when you first get Medicare, you are in Original Medicare. You may want to consider a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan to add drug coverage. Or, you may want to consider a Medicare Advantage Plan (like HMO or PPO) that provides all your Part A, and Part B, and often Part D coverage. You make a choice when you are first eligible for Medicare. Each year you can review your health and prescription needs and switch to a different plan in the fall. As long as you have both Part A and Part B, items covered by Part A and Part B are covered whether you have Original Medicare, or you belong to a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO).

If you have Medicare A&B, you are eligible to buy a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage Plan.
