Life Worth Living: Financial Solutions
Medicare is our country’s health insurance program for people age 65 or older. The program helps with the cost of health care, but it does not cover all medical expenses or the cost of most long-term care.
Medicare’s 4 Parts:
(Part A) Hospital insurance that helps pay for inpatient care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (following a hospital stay), some home health care and hospice care.
(Part B) Medical insurance that helps pay for doctors’ services and many other medical services and supplies that are not covered by hospital insurance.
(Part C) Medicare Advantage plans are available in many areas. People with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services through one of these provider organizations under Part C.
(Part D) Prescription drug coverage that helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment.
