What is Medicare?
Medicare was started in 1965 to help with medical expenses. It's a national health insurance program designed to help people age 65 and older with medical expenses. It is also available to some disabled people under the age of 65 and people who have End Stage Renal Disease.
Medicare includes Hospital Insurance (referred to as Part A); Medical Insurance (referred to as Part B); and a Prescription Drug benefit option (referred to as Part D). Part A helps to pay for your in-hospital expenses, and care in a skilled nursing facility and provides limited benefits for home health care and hospice care. Part B helps to pay doctor bills, outpatient hospital care and other medical services not covered by Part A. Beginning January 1, 2006, Part D Medicare Prescription Drug plans provide insurance coverage for prescription drugs. Call 1-800-247-1771 for more information on Medicare Part D.
What is Medicare Supplement Insurance?
Medicare Supplement plans are designed to help pay some of the medical expenses that Medicare does not pay. For example, you can choose a Medicare Supplement plan that pays the Part A deductible.
