Medicare Part A

Medicare Part A

Healthcare provider with patientOriginal Medicare comprises of two main parts: Medicare Part A or hospital insurance as well as Medicare Part B or medical insurance. Medicare Part A covers Medicare inpatient care, which includes care received when staying in a nursing house, a hospital and in rare circumstances, at home. In addition to that, it also covers blood transfusions and hospice services. It does NOT, however, cover long-term care, like extended stays in a nursing home. Individuals can think about buying long-term care insurance if this is something they wish to plan for.

majority of people become eligible for Medicare Part A automatically when they reach the age of 65 if they are already collecting retirement benefits from the Social Security Administration. You may also qualify for Part A before 65 in case you have a disability, ALS, or an end-stage renal disease. You must either be an American citizen or a legal permanent US citizen for a minimum of 5 consecutive years.

Cost of Medicare Part A

A majority of beneficiaries will pay nothing for Medicare Part A. However, Medicare Part A receivers pay taxes during their working years that are particularly for their future Medicare hospital coverage during retirement. These taxes go to compensate for the cost of Part A in the long run

As a beneficiary of Medicare A, you will receive coverage for hospital costs that are important to your inpatient care, like meals, a semi-private room, medications, nursing services that are part of your treatment, and other supplies and services from the services. This includes care that was received through:

  • Critical access hospitals
  • Mental healthcare
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Acute care medical facilities
  • Participation in a qualifying clinical research study
  • Inpatient rehab facilities

The cost for a private room (unless medically required), personal care stuff such as razors, shampoo, private-duty nursing, or other extraneous charges such as TV and telephone.

 

Part A Premiums

If you purchase Part A Medicare, you will pay around $506 every month in 2023. If you paid taxes related to Medicare for less than thirty quarters, the normal Part A premium is $506. On the other hand, if you paid those taxes for 30 to 39 quarters, the normal premium for Part A will be $278. If you have contributed for 40 or more quarters during your life, then there is no cost to Medicare Part A.

In a majority of cases, if you decide to buy Part A Medicare, you are required to have Medicare Part B or medical insurance.

I call Gio and she was amazing in her knowledge and helped find what I needed. She has saved me thousands of dollars over the next year and I have recommended her to several friends already. She works for a very helpful company.

I have been with Florida Health Agency (Bill Kohn) for 8 years and can't say enough good things about their company. He not only helped me navigate Medicare when my husband died but also helped me with my special needs daughter's insurance as well. Now both my son's have joined the fan club. Thanks again for your infinite patience.

If I could give William Kohn of Florida Health Agency 10 Stars I gladly would. I was literally in despair over the quality of healthcare that I was getting for my special needs daughter and just called his agency because he was close by and maybe I could go in and get a few minutes of time and advice on a new plan. He gave me all the time I needed over the phone and literally sat with me and made critically important changes as we spoke. My husband & I will be using his agency and expertise for the rest of our family members and will refer him to all our friends and associates.Thank you, William!!

I almost lost hope of finding the right plan after talking to other agencies. From the moment I first contacted Florida Health Agency, Priscilla was super kind! She replied to my e-mail within minutes and I was so glad to have found a Brazilian agent who understood my situation. She was caring, patient, and knowledgeable. Priscilla made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. I am so grateful for her help and I recommend her 100%!

I spoke to Florida health agency about 2 yrs ago asking about different insurances that I needed at the time. I was shocked at how knowledgeable William Kohn was. I saved his number and knew I would need him someday when I got ready to retire. He told me things that the 3 other agents I had spoken to never told me. For example no one told me there was a Medicare supplement plan G with a high deductible. This plan was exactly perfect for me. He is also very responsive when I have a question. I am so grateful I saved his number from the original phone call. He knows all aspects of insurance and the companies involved with them.

Bill Kohl was the best thing that has happened to our family in a while!I’m taking care of my father who has dementia. My Dad lived abroad and recently I moved him to US to live with me. He’s not Medicare eligible and my work insurance rejected him even though my Dad is my legal dependent.Bill found a perfect health plan for him! He researched doctors who speak my Dad’s native language ( as dementia progresses my Dad starts to forget English) and matched the plan to the provider.Bill also researched available subsidies that my Dad would qualify for!Bill is good hearted human being. He made our family very happy.Thank you Bill Kohl, from me and my Dad.

A Gio Sartor me ajudou a escolher o plano perfeito para mim (planos de saúde, visão e odontológico). Ela é muito paciente e respondeu com clareza todas as minhas perguntas, ficou comigo umas duas horas escolhendo e respondendo minhas perguntas no escritório dela. Dias depois que escolhi meus planos com a ajuda dela, ela ainda ficou me esclarendo via whatsapp e telefone mais algumas dúvidas que tive durante mais alguns dias. Eu não poderia ficar mais feliz com a escolha que fiz de fechar meus planos com essa agência. Recomendo demais! Cynara (Novembro 2021).
