Medicare Part A is sometimes referred to as “hospital insurance” and provides help with the cost of inpatient services, such as:
- Inpatient hospital stays
- Skilled nursing services
- Home health care
- Hospice care
For most people, Part A comes with no monthly premium as long as you or your spouse have contributed payroll taxes to Medicare for at least 10 years. However, Part A does not cover all of your hospital costs – as there are exclusions and out-of-pocket costs you are responsible for.
Enrollment is easy – you can’t be turned down because of your medical history or a pre-existing condition.
Which Doctors Can I See?:
You have access to any qualiﬁed hospital in the U.S. that accepts Medicare (hospital care outside of the U.S. isn’t usually covered).
