Medicare is a three-part health insurance program administered by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). It is designed to meet some of the hospital, medical, and prescription costs of senior citizens (age 65 or older) and some disabled persons under the age of 65.
Medicare provides different ways to choose your coverage. The Medicare plan that you choose affects many things, like cost, benefits, doctor choices, convenience, and quality. If you have limited income and resources, extra help may be available to help you pay for your coverage.
