Medicare is a federally funded health insurance program for people age 65 or older, some people with disabilities under age 65 and people with End-Stage Renal Disease.
Medicare has 2 parts: Part A and Part B. Part A is hospital insurance – most people do not pay for Part A coverage. Part B is medical insurance – most people pay monthly for Part B coverage.
If you qualify for Medicare, you also have the option of choosing a Medicare + Choice plan, which is a managed care plan administered by a private company that replaces your Medicare coverage.
There are limitations on a number of services and items covered by Medicare and Medi-Cal, depending on the plan you have. You are responsible for co-payments, deductibles, and other services not covered. If your Medicare or Medi-Cal coverage is through an HMO, it is important that you bring this to our attention.
