Medicare is a federal health insurance program that pays for a variety of health care expenses. It’s administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Medicare beneficiaries are typically senior citizens who are 65 years of age and older. Adults with certain approved medical conditions (such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) or qualifying permanent disabilities may also be eligible for Medicare benefits.
Similar to Social Security, Medicare is an entitlement program. Most U.S. citizens earn the right to enroll in Medicare by working and paying their taxes for a minimum required period. However, even if you didn’t work long enough to be entitled to Medicare benefits, you may still be eligible to enroll, but you will pay more.
There are four different parts to the Medicare program. Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B are sometimes called “Original Medicare”, and then Medicare Part C and Medicare Part D. Learn more on our Medicare Page.
