Medicare: Basics

Quick FAQ

Does Medicare Cover Eyeglass Care, Hearing Aids, or Routine Dental Care?Sadly, Medicare does not cover additional services such as eyeglass care, hearing aids or routine dental care. Those basic services were not included in the Medicare list of benefits. To change that, Congress would need to change the Medicare laws to include these services.

The Exceptions are when routine dental care is part of a Medicare covered treatment. An example of this would be a procedure that needed to extract teeth in preparation for the treatment of cancer via radiation therapy. This example shows that while tooth extraction is not a covered Medicare Benefit, it can be covered as part of a Medicare covered treatment.

What is Medicare?Medicare is a health insurance plan that is owned and managed by the Federal Government. Medicare is found within the Department of Health and Human Services and managed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Medicare is a government sponsored health program that most people automatically qualify for once they reach the age of 65. Medicare is also used to support medical insurance for people with qualifying disabilities and who are younger than 65 years of age.

Medicare is divided into four categories. Those are Medicare A, B, C, and D. Medicare A covers inpatient services like hospitalization. Medicare B works in conjunction with Medicare A to cover outpatient services such as doctors visits and therapy visits. Medicare A and B are often called Original Medicare.”

Medicare C is Medicare A and B but managed by third party health systems such as Kaiser. Medicare D is the prescription drug coverage that goes along with Medicare A, B, and C. Most Medicare C plans come with a variation of Medicare D. Medicare C is also referred to as Medicare Advantage.

To qualify for Medicare you need to have worked and paid into the program for a certain amount of years. If you have not qualified by working, you may still be eligible for services, but the penalty is a higher cost each month.

Am I Eligible for Medicare?If you are age 65 then you are probably eligible for Medicare. If you have a qualifying disability then you may also qualify for Medicare. For either case, you must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of more than 5 years to qualify for Medicare once you are age 65.

If you do have a qualifying disability or illness and have been disabled for more than 24 months then you should also qualify for Medicare. The enrollment process is usually automatic, but in some cases you must enroll yourself. If you want to qualify for Medicare C or Medicare D you must first be qualified for, and enrolled in Medicare part A and B.
