Medicare

Medicare is health insurance for people 65 or older. You may be eligible to get Medicare earlier if you have a disability, End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), or ALS (also called Lou Gehrig’s disease). 

Some people get Medicare automatically, others have to actively sign up -- it depends if you start getting retirement or disability benefits from Social Security before you turn 65.

 

The different parts of Medicare help cover specific services:

  • Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)

  • Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)

  • Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage)

 

Medicare.gov is the official website managed by the federal government. Among the useful resources you will find there is Medicare's Costs at a Glance.

 

Use this information to help you compare your coverage options and decide what coverage is right for you.
