It’s important to have reliable healthcare as we age. However, many people do not have access to healthcare during retirement because they lose their health insurance when they stop working. Medicare provides insurance for individuals who are 65 years of age and older and people with specific disabilities.
Medicare provides essential healthcare for elderly individuals, disabled individuals, and people who have permanent kidney failure that results in the need for dialysis or a kidney transplant. Without Medicare coverage, many seniors would not receive the routine healthcare needed to maintain good health.
Medicare coverage is not automatic; you must enroll in Medicare to receive benefits.
The 4 Parts of Medicare
