Medicare: Do You Know All You Should?

Benefits Covered Under Part A of the Medicare Statutes

In general, Medicare is much like a health insurance policy. There are certain types of medical conditions covered, and certain limitations on coverage which will be paid by Medicare. If a condition exceeds the coverage limitation set forth in the Medicare "policy," you are required to pay the entire amount yourself, through your other insurance, or with your own assets.

Under this coverage, charges made to Medicare for you are submitted by the physician, hospital or other healthcare entity or provider. You are generally not responsible for submitting claims, as you would expect to under normal health insurance. Healthcare providers of any type are not permitted to make any charges to you for submission of these claims, and to do so is a violation of federal law.
