Medicare is a government-run healthcare program in the United States for people aged 65 and older, as well as certain people with disabilities. If you’re injured and have Medicare coverage, you may be entitled to benefits from your insurance company or the government. The process of negotiating a claim for Medicare is different than with other types of insurance, so it’s important to know what to expect before you get started.
What is Medicare?
Medicare is a federally funded health insurance program for people aged 65 and over, and people with disabilities.
Medicare covers doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, and some other costs.
To qualify for Medicare, you must be a US citizen or resident, have paid Social Security taxes for at least 10 years, and be age 65 or older.
When you apply for Medicare, the government will check to see if you are eligible for benefits. If you are eligible, the government will provide you with a Medicare card. You can use this card to get benefits from Medicare.
If you have questions about your eligibility or benefits, call the Medicare Information Center at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
If you are not eligible for Medicare but want to find out if you may be able to get coverage through a private health insurance plan, call Health Insurance Exchanges in your state. These exchanges will help you compare different plans and decide which one is best for you.
