Understanding the 4 parts of Medicare.
Medicare is divided into four main parts, each offering coverage for specific services. Here’s what you need to know.
Medicare Part C, commonly referred to as Medicare Advantage, enables approved private companies to deliver Medicare benefits. This comprehensive plan integrates Parts A, B, and D, along with additional coverage for services not typically included in basic Medicare, such as vision and dental care. It may also include prescription drug coverage. Learn more.
Medicare Part D is a prescription drug coverage plan that includes coverage for both generic and brand-name medications. Its primary objective is to assist individuals dealing with escalating or already high prescription drug costs.

Yes! If you meet certain criteria, you can qualify for Medicare even if you haven’t worked. These special circumstances include:
Spousal Coverage: If your spouse is eligible for social security, disability, or retirement benefits, or if you were married for over 10 years and your former spouse is eligible. If your spouse has passed away and you haven’t remarried, you may also be eligible.
Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, like permanent kidney failure or ALS, qualify you for Medicare Part A. Contact a Medicare specialist or visit the US Department of Health and Human Services Medicare benefits page for more information on disability eligibility.
Paid Premium: If you’re not eligible for free Medicare Part A, you can pay a monthly premium for the same benefits. To apply, you must be at least 65 years old and a U.S. citizen for at least five years. The monthly cost for Part A may be up to $470, potentially lower if you worked for less than ten years.
Medicare and Medicaid are government healthcare programs in the U.S.
Medicare mainly serves individuals aged 65 and older, as well as some with disabilities or specific medical conditions. It’s funded by the federal government and provides coverage through different parts, including hospital and medical insurance.
On the other hand, Medicaid is designed for low-income individuals, pregnant women, children, and people with disabilities. It’s jointly funded by federal and state governments, with benefits and eligibility criteria varying by state. Unlike Medicare, Medicaid covers a broader range of services, including long-term care and mental health services, and is administered by individual states under federal guidelines.

Coinsurance refers to the percentage you pay for certain health care expenses during the year. After you reach the amount of your deductible, coinsurance will then take over.
Copay refers to flat fees you’ll pay for medical services or products. Copays are usually applied to certain prescription drugs, doctor visits, urgent care, and other services. Click here to learn more.
