Making sense of Medicare
and talking about what you need to know about your health care choices.

What is Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for people 65 and older and certain younger people with disabilities and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). 

Medicare will likely cover you for more years than any other medical plan you have ever had.


Parts A and B are considered Original Medicare. Part A is free and Part B has a monthly premium ($104.90 in 2013) which is either deducted from your Social Security check or paid quarterly if not collecting Social Security.

Part A covers hospital benefits and Part B covers physician services, inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services and supplies, physical and speech therapy, diagnostic tests and durable medical equipment.
