What is Medicare?
Medicare is the federal-level health insurance program for Americans who: are 65 years of age or older; are younger with certain disabilities; or have end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Many millions of Americans depend on Medicare to cover the costs of the services they need. This coverage makes healthcare much more affordable and thus more accessible to millions of Americans.
What does Medicare cover?
Medicare can cover a lot of different medical services so a patient can receive comprehensive medical care at an affordable cost. There are three parts of Medicare that help cover particular services:
- Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) – This covers care in a hospital and some other places
- Medicare Part B (medical insurance) – This is the main part of Medicare you’ll use at a primary care clinic like Rachman Medical Group; it covers doctors’ services and related services
- Medicare Part D (prescription drug coverage) – You might also use this at a clinic like ours; it will help cover the costs of prescription drugs and even some vaccines
There are different options in how Medicare patients can get their coverage. For example, if drug coverage is really important to you, you can opt for a Medicare-approved plan that offers drug coverage, like a Medicare drug plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan with drug coverage.
What services are covered by Medicare?
So many different kinds of services can be covered by Medicare, including many of the services offered at a primary care clinic like Rachman Medical Group. Specifically, the services covered by Medicare can include:
