When considering applying for Medicare, you need to know what your options are. The Improving Medicare Coverage Act has made distinct changes to the lives of Americans, leading to improved health benefits. Many Americans over the age of 60 live with little or no medical insurance, making it difficult for them to have access to proper medical care.
There are several groups of people who are eligible for the Medicare program. The program caters to persons aged 65 and above, young people with some disabilities, and persons suffering from end-stage renal failure. Elderly persons above the age of 65 can receive Medicare under two different plans: Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (Medicare insurance).
