Medicare Part B

Part B is supplemental insurance that covers healthcare costs for people under 65.


The eligibility criterion of Medicare part B is as below:


1)- Age: 65 years and above
2)- Source: You have been on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for two years.

3)- You have the end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Medicare Part B is a part of this reform law, which covers prescription drugs, laboratory services, and dental care. Medicare Part B works with insurance companies to purchase prescriptions for seniors and people with disabilities. This is known as the Part B program.
These services are essential for seniors and people living with disabilities because these medications can be very expensive. If you have Medicare, doctors may not be able to prescribe certain medications if they cost too much or they cannot take other medicines.
If you have this coverage, you may get a discount on prescription drugs. In addition, Medicare Part B includes deductibles and co-pays. The Centers administer Medicare Part B for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
These services are provided by companies that compete to provide these services at affordable prices. The CMS describes these companies as “safety net” providers. In other words, they are not for profit or the drug companies.
Medicare Part B works with the programs that emphasize “safety net” payment because these companies provide many of the services people need in groups such as elders and people living with disabilities. In addition, Medicaid coverage can be used to pay Part B expenses, but only if you have a child eligible for Medicaid.
Medicaid has a lower income cap and is funded by taxes on the top one percent of incomes. Part B coverage can be used to pay for rent, mortgage insurance, and other essential services that are not covered in different ways. It includes home health care (telehealth) providers, travel health insurance (including accident and illness insurance), prescription drug coverage, dental coverage, and vision care. However, you can’t use Medicaid to pay for prescription drugs.
