What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a jointly funded, Federal-State health insurance program for low-income and needy people. It covers children, the aged, blind, and/or disabled and other people who are eligible to receive federally assisted income maintenance payments.
For more information, visit the official Medicaid website.
What is Medicare?
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes called ESRD). The four different parts of Medicare help cover specific services:
Medicare Part A: Hospital Insurance
Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care
Medicare Part B: Medical Insurance
Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
Medicare Part C: Medicare Advantage Plans
A type of Medicare health plan offered by a private company that contracts with Medicare to provide you with all your Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. If you’re enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage.
Medicare Part D: Prescription Drug Coverage
Part D adds prescription drug coverage to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. These plans are offered by insurance companies and other private companies approved by Medicare. Medicare Advantage Plans may also offer prescription drug coverage that follows the same rules as Medicare Prescription Drug Plans.
For more information, visit the official Medicare website.
What is TRICARE?
TRICARE is the health care program for uniformed service members and their families around the world. TRICARE provides comprehensive coverage to all beneficiaries, including health plans, special programs, prescriptions and dental plans. TRICARE is managed by the Defense Health Agency under leadership of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs).
