What's Original Medicare?
Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance).
Who provides coverage?
How do you choose your providers?
You have your choice of doctors, hospitals, and other providers that accept Medicare.
How much does it cost?
In 2017, the standard Part B premium amount is $134 (or higher depending on your income). However, most people who get Social Security benefits pay less than this amount ($109 on average).
Generally, you pay a deductible and coinsurance for your Part A and Part B services. If you choose to buy a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, your Medigap policy may pay some of these costs.
In general, Part A covers:
• Hospital care
• Skilled nursing facility care
• Nursing home care (as long as custodial care isn't the only care you need)
• Home health services
Part B covers 2 types of services
• Medically necessary services: Services or supplies that are needed to diagnose or treat your medical condition and that meet accepted standards of medical practice.
• Preventive services: Health care to prevent illness (like the flu) or detect it at an early stage, when treatment is most likely to work best.
