Medicare A & B 

Parts A & B are the foundation of Medicare. Together, they make up the major medical health insurance. Among other things, Medicare Part A covers you if you are hospitalized or in a Rehab Facility. Medicare Part B covers you for outpatient services. This includes care at the doctor, emergency room, and outpatient facilities.

Need To Know

  • Medicare A & B has a monthly cost as well as deductibles & co-pays when you receive medical care.

  • Medicare Part A is usually no charge. The standard monthly premium for Part B in 2020is $144.60. If you are considered a high income earner, your monthly premium could be higher.

  • You are eligible for Medicare A & B the first day of the month that you turn 65. If you are already receiving Social Security payments, you will be automatically enrolled in Medicare. If you are not receiving Social Security, you will need to apply for Medicare. 

Medicare A & B, by itself, does not set annual limits on your out of pocket deductibles and co-pays. This is why it is recommended to have a Medicare Supplement or Part C Advantage Plan.
