What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for:
  • People age 65 or older;
  • People with certain disabilities; or
  • People with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant.)

    Medicare has four parts:

  • MEDICARE
    PART A

    Hospital Insurance

    Helps cover inpatient care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (following a hospital stay), home health care services, and hospice care services. Copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles may apply for each service. You usually do not pay a monthly premium for Part A coverage if you or your spouse paid Medicare taxes while working.

Copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles may apply for each service. You can find out if you have Part B by looking at your Medicare card. You pay the Part B premium each month. Part A and Part B are often referred to as “Original Medicare”.
