Medicare Explained

Medicare is a government health insurance program for people age 65 and over, as well as certain disabled Americans. Since the eligibility requirements and benefit structure are the same nationwide, you can apply for Medicare at your local Social Security office. To receive benefits, your medical charges must meet Medicare standards, which normally include approval by a qualified physician. Also, the services you receive must be delivered by Medicare certified providers such as hospitals and other health care providers who have been approved to participate in the program, such as Brentwood Healthcare, Ltd.. You are eligible for Medicare at the start of the month you turn 65 whether you are retired or still working.

The Medicare program has two parts; part A is hospital insurance and Part B is medical insurance. Benefits are based on a benefit period, which is defined as the date you first enter a hospital or skilled nursing facility until 60 days after you no longer receive skilled services. In-Patient Care in a Skilled Nursing Facility - To be covered you must have been in a hospital for at least 3 days, then transferred to the nursing facility within 30 days of leaving the hospital. The first 20 days of care in each benefit period are 100% covered by Medicare. The next 80 days of continuous coverage in the skilled nursing facility may be covered by Medicare and your supplemental insurance. No benefits are provided after day 100. Part A does not pay for your stay in a skilled nursing facility if you need skilled nursing services or rehabilitation services less than daily or if these services are no longer improving your condition.
