Medicare is a fee-for-service health care program in which the government pays health care providers directly for certain services. Medicare is for seniors and those on social security disability. Many of our clients start thinking about Medicare plan options when they are about to turn 65.
The Four Parts of Medicare
Covers hospital care, emergency services, nursing home care, home health services and hospice.
Medical care for things like diagnosing and treating medical conditions, and preventative services.
A Medicare Advantage plan which combines Parts A and B and often part D as well.
A stand-alone plan that provides prescription drug coverage.
Medicare was passed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Services started one year later and covered more than 19 million Americans. In 1972, Medicare coverage was extended to include the long term disabled. Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C started in 1997 bringing private insurance plans into the marketplace. Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage took effect in 2006. Today, more than 60 million people are on Medicare.
Enrolling in Medicare
