Really Dumb



Medicare is a health insurance program for people 65 and older, and for some people with disabilities. It helps pay for medical services like doctor visits, hospital stays, and tests. It also helps pay for some of the costs of prescription drugs. Think of Medicare like a puzzle. Medicare has several parts that work together. Part A covers hospital stays and other inpatient care. Part B covers doctors’ visits, tests, and preventive care. Part D covers prescription drugs. Part C gives you the option to get your Medicare benefits through a private insurance plan. Here’s a fun fact: Medicare was created in 1965 and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
