Everyone 65 and older is entitled to basic Medicare coverage, but typically it only covers about 64 percent of the annual healthcare costs. Added to the expense not covered by Medicare, there are deductibles, co-payments, and coinsurance to pay. This is why many choose Medicare Supplements or Medicare Advantage Plans.

Medicare is a federal health insurance program in the United States that provides coverage to people who are 65 years or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and those with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Medicare offers four main types of coverage, known as Parts A, B, C, and D. Here’s a more detailed explanation of each:

  1. Medicare Part A: Part A is hospital insurance that covers inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility care, hospice care, and some home health care services. Most people who have worked and paid Medicare taxes for at least 10 years will not have to pay a premium for Part A.

  2. Medicare Part B: Part B is medical insurance that covers doctor visits, outpatient care, medical equipment, and preventive services like flu shots and cancer screenings. There is a monthly premium for Part B, and the amount varies depending on your income.

  3. Medicare Part C: Part C, also known as Medicare Advantage, is an alternative to Original Medicare (Parts A and B). It’s offered by private insurance companies approved by Medicare and includes all the benefits of Parts A and B, plus additional benefits like vision, dental, and prescription drug coverage. Medicare Advantage plans may have lower out-of-pocket costs than Original Medicare but may also have more restrictions on which doctors and hospitals you can use.

  4. Medicare Part D: Part D is prescription drug coverage that helps cover the cost of prescription medications. It’s offered by private insurance companies approved by Medicare, and there is a monthly premium for Part D. The amount varies depending on the plan you choose and your income.

In summary, Medicare offers hospital insurance (Part A), medical insurance (Part B), Medicare Advantage (Part C), and prescription drug coverage (Part D). It’s important to understand the differences between these options so that you can choose the coverage that best meets your healthcare needs and budget.
