Medicare is the public and federal health insurance within the US healthcare system for elderly or disabled citizens. Any citizen over the age of 65, any citizen with a recognized disability, and any citizen with acute renal failure requiring permanent dialysis or kidney transplantation may be eligible for Medicare.
There are four “parts” to your Medicare benefits:
Part A (also called Original Medicare) is managed by Medicare and provides Medicare coverage for is your nursing care and hospital stays, although not doctors’ fees and expenses. Part A also covers some home health services, skilled nursing care after a hospital stay and hospice care.Part A is also free of charge for most people as long as they have worked at least 10 years in the U.S.
Part C plans are offered through private insurance companies and approved by Medicare such as our agency.They are also called Medicare Advantage or Medicare Health plans. To be eligible for a Part C plan, you must first enroll in Medicare A and B.
The benefits of Part C plans is that you get medical services that are not covered by Plan A and B such as vision and dental care, if you sign up with our agency you also get prescription drug coverage.
