Medicare Facts

Medicare is the federal health insurance program that covers:

  • People who are 65 and older
  • People under 65 with certain disabilities
  • Anyone with end-stage renal disease

Original Medicare is comprised of Medicare Parts A & B:

  • Part A (Hospital Insurance) covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.
  • Part B (Medical Insurance) covers certain doctors' services, outpatient care, medical supplies and preventative services.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Also known as Medicare Part C, these plans offer all the benefits of Original Medicare and more! Medicare Advantage plans include medical and prescription coverage as well as additional benefits like dental, vision and hearing.

Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare wasn't created to cover all health care expenses. A Medicare Supplement plan, also called a Medigap plan, can fill in the gaps and help with certain Medicare out-of-pocket costs like deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. You can see any physician who accepts Medicare!

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans

Also called Medicare Part D plans or PDPs, these plans help people with Medicare more easily afford prescription drugs. Only offered by private insurance companies, PDPs can be combined with Original Medicare or a Medicare Supplement plan to reduce your cost for medications.
