When you reach the age of 65, you are eligible for Medicare coverage. Medicare coverage falls into four parts, each which offers a type of payment support and coverage.

If you are a Medicare recipient, you are covered for Parts A, B and D relating to hospital stays, some drug prescriptions payments, and medical appointments with your doctor. The services are not free; they are partly paid for, depending on how much you paid into Medicare during the years you worked, and what your income is currently. There may be extra costs in the form of co-pays or higher premiums.
