What is Medicare?
Government Health Insurance in Florida
First created in 1965, the goal of Medicare was to provide easier access
to health services for people over 65 and disabled individuals. Today,
Medicare has 4 Parts, each of which cover various medical needs a patient
may need. Determining which Medicare Parts are right for you is an important
decision you should make before sending in your application.
Part A: This covered hospital insurance for inpatient stays as well as services
from a skilled nursing facility, hospice center, and select home service
companies. There is no monthly premium for Part A coverage.
Part B: Part B Medicare is an optional additional coverage that covered doctor’s
services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive healthcare
services. Many members need to pay a monthly premium for Part B.
Part C: Also called the Medicare Advantage plan, Part C Medicare aims to replace
original Medicare by supplying members with coverage from private companies
that have contracts with Medicare. These plans contain all Part A and
Part B advantages and they sometimes include additional prescription drug
Part D: The final Medicare Part covers prescription drugs. Part D is only sold
through private organizations contracted with Medicare.
