What Is Medicare?

Medicare is a U.S. federal program designed to provide health insurance for individuals primarily aged 65 and older. The program was created to ensure that seniors, who often face numerous health challenges, receive necessary medical care without the burden of exorbitant costs. Medicare also serves individuals under 65 who have specific disabilities and people of all ages diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Are You Eligible For Medicare?

Approaching 65 years old

Your Medicare enrollment window begins three months before your 65th birthday and extends three months after. Celebrate your milestone by ensuring you’re covered!

Already 65 years old or Older

You qualify if:

    • You or your spouse have contributed to Medicare through your employment for at least 10 years.
    • You’ve been a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident for a minimum of five years.
    • You haven’t started collecting Social Security? No problem! You can still enroll in Medicare.

Under 65 years old with a Disability

You’re in if:

    • You’ve maintained U.S. citizenship or permanent residency for at least five years.
    • You are living with a disability or ESRD and have been receiving disability benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) for at least 24 months.

Medicare Parts

Understanding Medicare Components

Medicare Part A (Hospital Coverage)

It covers:

Medicare Part B (Medical Coverage)

It covers:

While Medicare Parts A and B help to cover some of your health care costs, they won’t cover everything (like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles). You may want to complement your Medicare coverage. That’s where Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans may be able to help.

Medicare Supplement Insurance

While Medicare provides a foundational level of coverage, there are gaps. Costs like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles aren’t always covered under Parts A and B. This is where Medicare Supplement Insurance comes into play. And good news! Utah Insurance Advisors specialize in MAPD and Supplemental health insurance options too.
