What Is Medicare?
Medicare is a national health insurance program for people 65 and older, and under 65 with certain disabilities or end-stage renal disease (kidney failure).
The history of Medicare goes back to 1965, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a bill into law so that eligible people could get the health coverage they needed from a federal government program. At first, the coverage was restricted to Part A and Part B.
The coverage has evolved over the years to cover more people, and now, more than 50 million people are on Medicare. While Parts A and B (called Original Medicare) will provide coverage for 80% of your expenses, there are supplemental policies that you can buy to help with the other 20%.
