Medicare is a healthcare program that provides coverage for individuals who are eligible for it and those who are currently receiving treatment at a medical facility. It is a fee-for service plan that the federal government is managing.

Since 1965, Medicare has been composed of two parts: the Medicare Part A and the Medicare Part B. For over 50 years, the program has been able to provide coverage for individuals with disabilities and seniors.

With the help of Medicare, people can bypass the need for a referral or authorization when they go to the doctor or hospital of their choice. The government will then pay the cost of the service, and the individual will only be responsible for the remaining left-over funds.
