Medicare, a federally funded health insurance program, addresses the treatment of acute medical conditions. Designed for individuals aged 65 and above, as well as those under 65 with specific disabilities like permanent kidney failure, this program comprises two primary components.

Part A – Hospital insurance encompasses inpatient hospital care, critical access care, short-term stays in skilled nursing facilities, hospice, and home health care. However, it generally does not cover expenses related to assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or long-term home care. Most Medicare beneficiaries incur no monthly premium, provided they or their spouses contributed to Medicare taxes during their employment. For those ineligible for cost-free Hospital Insurance, purchasing Part A coverage remains an option.

Part B – Medical Insurance addresses doctor visits, outpatient care, select preventive services, and certain occupational and physical therapy. A monthly premium, often income-dependent, may be applicable. It’s crucial to note that Medical Insurance does not cover all service costs, leaving beneficiaries responsible for the remaining expenses not covered by Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans integrate services from both Part A and Part B, potentially including prescription drug coverage at an additional cost. These plans, offered by private insurance companies, offer flexibility in choosing preferred plans, be it a preferred provider organization, health maintenance organization, or Private Fee-for-Service.

Prescription Drug Coverage is provided through insurance companies contracting with Medicare. For a monthly premium, beneficiaries gain access to necessary medications.

Medigap plans, available from insurance companies, address services not fully covered by Medicare, such as co-insurance, co-payments, deductibles, and the gaps in coverage.

Determining eligibility for Medicare involves meeting certain criteria, including age, work history, and citizenship or permanent residency. Individuals aged 65 or older with at least 10 years of Medicare-covered employment, as well as those under 65 with disabilities or End-Stage Renal Disease, may qualify.

Specific eligibility conditions for Part A include receiving retirement benefits, being eligible for Social Security or Railroad benefits, or having Medicare-covered government employment. Individuals under 65 may qualify if they have received Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits for 24 months or are kidney dialysis or transplant patients.

While Part A may be premium-free for eligible individuals, Part B premiums are deducted from Social Security, Railroad Retirement, or Civil Service Retirement checks. Those without these payments receive a quarterly bill from Medicare for Part B premiums.
