What Medicare Covers

Medicare Card

Medicare is a government-sponsored health insurance program for American citizens and permanent legal residents (of at least five years in a row) who are 65 years old or more, or who qualify by disability or certain conditions, such as end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure requiring continuous dialysis treatment or a kidney transplant) or Lou Gehrig's disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The basic program is called Original Medicare and includes Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance).

  • Medicare Part A: hospital insurance, covers services such as (but not limited to) inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility care, hospice services, and limited home health care.
  • Medicare Part B: medical insurance, covers services and supplies such as (but not limited to) outpatient care, mental health services, lab tests, doctor visits, durable medical equipment, and preventive services.

Original Medicare Parts A and B have many gaps that can be covered by a Medicare Supplement Plan. View the standardized Medicare Supplements to find the best coverage for you. Call one of our independent agents at (866) 406.6773 or Click Here for a free rate quote.
