A Simple Glance at Medicare Coverage
If you’re 65 or older, it’s time to think about enrolling in Medicare or talking to an agent about your Medicare options. As a start, think about Medicare insurance coverage in four ways or parts. This is key to understanding how Medicare works.
Part A – Coverage for inpatient hospital stays, hospice and skilled nursing.
Part B – Widely used, this coverage is voluntary but generally includes a monthly premium and annual deductible. This part is important because it covers your visits to a physician, lab tests, preventive care, outpatient care and durable medical supplies.
Part C – This part involves private insurance plans and Medicare Advantage plans designed to help cover the costs involved under Part A and B.
Part D – Coverage for prescription drugs for patients enrolled in Medicare.
