Quick Overview of Medicare
Medicare Part A covers inpatient treatment in a variety of settings including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, hospice, and other inpatient facilities. Medicare Part A involves deductibles and co-pays, including a $1,216 deductible per benefit period and up to $608 per day for long-term hospital stays over 90 days.
Medicare Part B is health insurance that covers doctor
visits, exams, immunizations, checkups, and durable
medical equipment. Like Part A, Medicare Part B involves
out-of-pocket expenses including a monthly premium,
a $147 annual deductible and typically 20 percent
of the total cost of your care.**
Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage. These
plans reduce your overall health care costs by lowering
the cost of your prescriptions. Each plan can vary by cost
and drug coverage.
