What is Medicare and how do I use it?
Medicare is health insurance designed primarily for folks age 65 and older. Those who are younger than 65 may qualify if they are disabled or have end stage kidney disease.
Parts A, B, C and D
Medicare is divided into 4 parts with two primary parts (A and B) being the ones most people will use. Part A covers your hospital bills while Part B is for doctor bills.
Part C is commonly referred to as an Advantage plan. Advantage plans combine the benefits of parts A and B and sometimes D under one policy. Unlike Medicare A and B, Advantage plans are offered through private insurance companies. Those who elect a part C (Advantage plan) are taken off original Medicare and covered by private insurance.
Part D covers prescription drugs and is a separate plan purchased through private insurance companies.

How much does Medicare cost?
Most people can obtain Part A without paying any premiums. You are eligible for Part A at no charge if you are age 65 or older and you or your spouse have paid Medicare taxes through your employer for at least 10 years. You can get Part A at 65 if you are receiving Social Security or Railroad Retirement Benefits, or if you are eligible to receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits but have not yet filed, or if you or your spouse had Medicare participating government employment.
