Health is wealth. Indeed, this saying has proven true over the years. People have realized the need to stay healthy and have taken various measures to achieve this aim. One of the measures that many people the world over has resulted to is taking medical covers. One of the most popular medical covers is Medicare.
Medicare is a program of insurance that is provided by the government to its citizens. This program of insurance is mainly provided to people who have attained the age of 65.
Medicare has two main parts namely; part A and part B. Part A is hospital insurance while part B is medical insurance. Medicare usually caters for specific services that are related to health care. This means that depending on which part of Medicare you have, you can only enjoy the services of that particular part and not any other.
It is important to be very clear on the extent to which Medicare covers. There has been a general misconception in the past that Medicare covers for every aspect of health care. The correct position is that Medicare does not cover all aspects of health and that it depends on which part of Medicare you have.
It is also important to note that Medicare does not cover for the total costs of all the services that you are covered for. This means that for all the health services that you are provided for under Medicare, there is a certain amount of expense that you are expected to meet. It is therefore important to make consultations with your doctor in order to be sure that the services that you are receiving under Medicare Cover best suit your needs health wise. It is important to stay clear on the extent to which Medicare covers so that you know how much you are required to pay on your own.
