What is Medicare?

subheader seperator

Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older, under age 65 with certain disabilities, and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant).

Medicare provides medical (doctor and hospital) care and prescription drug benefits. Medical benefits are received through a fee-for-service system (Original Medicare) or through a private insurance company. Prescription drug benefits can be purchased with Original Medicare or with a Medicare health plan.

The Different 'Parts' of Medicare

Medicare has four parts:

Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) helps cover your inpatient care in hospitals. Part A also helps cover skilled nursing facility, hospice and home health care.

Medicare Part B (medical insurance) helps cover doctors' services and outpatient care. Part B also helps cover some preventive services to help maintain your health and to keep certain illnesses from getting worse.

Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage Plans) is another way to get your Medicare benefits. It combines Part A, Part B and may include Part D (prescription drug) coverage. Medicare Advantage Plans are approved by Medicare and managed by private insurance companies, like Geisinger Gold. These plans cover more services than Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans can charge varying amounts for copayments, coinsurance, or deductibles for these services.

Medicare Part D (Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage) helps cover prescription drugs. This coverage helps cover the cost of prescription drugs.
