What is Medicare?

Medicare is the federal government program that provides health insurance coverage.


You qualify for Medicare if:


  • You are 65 and over;

  • You are under age 65 and receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for a certain amount of time (you are eligible after 24 months);

  •  You are under age 65 and have either End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or ALS.

It is IMPORTANT to note that when we refer to "Medicare" we are referring to parts A and B of Medicare. This is also commonly referred to as "Original Medicare"


We will cover additional topics (Medicare Advantage, Medigap, Part D, for example) in the many sections to come!
