Health coverage for seniors


What is Medicare? 

Medicare is a government insurance program offered to people 65 years or elderly and people with certain disabilities, such as End-Stage Renal Disease.  It assists elder people with aid for medical, vision, dental, hospital and other health related costs.  

How does it work? 

There are two types of Medicare: Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage .

Original Medicare allows you to go to any doctor and facility that accepts Medicare.  This program only covers hospital and medical costs up to 80%, which falls into the Part A & Bof Medicare. There is no limit to what you pay out of pocket. Original Medicare only covers a certain amount of days in the hospital or a facility. As well, Original Medicare rarely covers any out of country medical emergencies. 

Medicare Advantage also known as part C & D can cover dental, vision and prescriptions drugs with also covering hospital and medical costs. This Unlike Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage has an out-of-pocket maximum, which means that after you hit your deductible maximum the plan starts to pay 100% of most of your bills. This plan might also cover out of country emergency medical bills, check with your provider about this.
