Medicare Broken Down
Part A - Seniors receive Medicare Part A automatically when they turn 65. It covers a portion of inpatient care and hospitals.
Part B - Medicare Part B covers almost everything that Part A does not cover. Part B helps cover office visits to a primary care physician and specialists, some preventative services, laboratory costs, medical equipment such as wheel chairs and walkers, outpatient physical therapy, mental health care, and ambulance services. To enroll in Part B, seniors will need to contact their local Social Security office.
Part D - Once seniors have obtained both Medicare parts A&B they are eligible to enroll onto a part D plan which covers prescriptions drugs.
Medicare Supplement Plans - Medicare supplement plans are designed to fill the gaps that exist in Medicare coverage. These plans help pay for costs such as copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance.
