Medicare Plans for Raleigh Residents
Medicare is a federal health insurance program that pays for much, but not all, of the medical expenses for people 65 and over. It also covers individuals under 65 with certain disabilities.
These are the four parts:
Part A – helps cover inpatient care in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, hospice and home health care.
Part B – helps cover doctor’s services, hospital outpatient care and some preventative services. For individuals new to Medicare in 2011 the average Part B premium is $115 per month. This amount is higher for singles earning more than $85,000 or couples earning over $170,000.
Part C – is Medicare Advantage Plans (also known as Medicare Health Plans). These plans are another way to receive your Medicare benefits and are sold by private insurance companies approved by Medicare. They combine the benefits of A, B and often D. To be eligible for a Medicare Advantage Plan you must be enrolled in both A and B.
Part D – is Medicare prescription drug coverage. High income earners pay a surcharge for this coverage.
