Medicare, a vital healthcare program for seniors and certain disabled individuals, comprises four key parts. This post breaks down each part’s coverage, providing a concise overview for better understanding.

Medicare Eligibility:

Eligibility kicks in at age 65 or after receiving 24 months of Social Security Disability payments. Unlike private insurance, Medicare doesn’t have family plans, allowing individuals to make independent coverage choices.

The Four Parts of Medicare:

  1. Part A – Hospital Insurance: Covers inpatient hospital stays, skilled nursing facilities, hospice, rehabilitation, and home health care.
  2. Part B – Medical Insurance: Includes physician services, outpatient hospital services, home health services, durable medical equipment, medications, and additional medical services.
  3. Part C – Medicare Advantage: Offers private health care plans as an alternative to Original Medicare (Part A and Part B).
  4. Part D – Prescription Drug Coverage: Focuses on providing coverage for prescription drugs through Medicare-approved private insurance plans.
