Medicare is health insurance for people 65 and older. It also can cover some people under 65 with certain disabilities. And it covers people of any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant).
Your Medicare coverage choices may include:
- Original Medicare (Parts A and B)
- Medicare Advantage (Part C)
- Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D)
- A Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan can be added to cover eligible health care costs that Medicare Parts A and B don’t cover.
If you get coverage from an employer or group health plan, review the information they provided to see what options are available to you.
