Medicare Health Insurance
Medicare is a health insurance program run by the Federal Government. It provides coverage for people who are:
- Age 65 and older
- Under age 65 with certain disabilities
- Of all ages with end-stage renal disease
Medicare is made up of parts that handle different types of coverage:
- A and B, also known as Original Medicare
- C (Medicare Advantage)
- D (Prescription Drug Plans)
There is also a product that isn't a part of Medicare that provides additional coverage, called Medicare Supplement or Medigap. Medicare Supplement plans are a supplement to Medicare and are available through private insurance companies such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.
