What is Medicare and Who is it For?
Medicare is a national federal health insurance program that is administrated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). It provides health insurance for Americans who are:
- 65 years or older
- Younger people with a disability status determined by the SSA
- People with End-Stage Renal Disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Your Medicare Options
There are four main parts of Medicare insurance:
- Part A (Hospital Insurance)
- Part B (Medical Insurance)
- Part C (Medicare Advantage)
- Part D (Prescription Drug Coverage)
Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B make up Traditional Medicare. Most eligible individuals are automatically enrolled in Traditional Medicare when they turn 65. Medicare Part C is known as Medicare Advantage and offers another way to get Original Medicare Part A and Part B coverage.
You Have Choices
It's important to realize that individuals have choices when turning 65. Considering a Medicare Advantage plan may be your first step in receiving better care.
