Basics: Medicare Part A

 

Medicare Part A

Over 65, Medicare Part A

Generally covers hospital inpatient services. This includes stays in a hospital or nursing facility. It also pays for some home care and hospice.

Medicare Parts A and B are sometimes called “Original Medicare.” Original Medicare is very different from private insurance plans like health maintenance organizations, or HMOs.  HMOs often restrict you to doctors or hospitals in their network. Traditional Medicare allows you to go to any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. Original Medicare is also called “fee-for-service,” which has to do with how the doctor or hospital gets paid.
