How much would you pay out-of-pocket for a five day hospital stay on Medicare? The majority of people have no idea! The problem with Medicare is there is too much information. An overwhelming amount of information and not enough resources. Medicare Nation solves that problem by educating you on all things Medicare, because there are not enough resources out there!

I like to call Medicare Part A “The Accommo- dations” part of Medicare.

If you went on vacation and stayed at your brother’s house in Miami for one week, your brother’s house would be your“accommodations.”  Staying overnight at your brother’s house would also provide you with necessary services –

  1. Bathing
  2. Using the toilet
  3. Eating meals
  4. OTC Medications you may need
  5. A bed to sleep in

Medicare Part A provides similar services – and more, while staying overnight at a

  1. Hospital
  2. Hospice
  3. Skilled Nursing Facility

Medicare Part A has a deductible when you are an inpatient in the hospital. Each year the deductible may change. In the episode, the deductible was $1,216.00. Currently, the deductible is $1,260.00. Starting in 2016, it may change again.

In this episode, you will also learn:

  1. How to qualify for Medicare Part A
  2. If you don’t qualify how to “Buy-In” to Medicare Part A

You will also learn:

  1. The Services covered under Part A
  2. A helpful phrase to help you remember Part A Services

JFK wanted a national healthcare system for our older citizens. He even appeared on national TV to promote the campaign in 1962. I’m certain JFK would have seen his legacy if he hadn’t been brutally assassinated.

When VP Lyndon B. Johnson took over as President, he continued the work JFK started, and on July 30, 1965, Medicare became the law of the land.

Many changes have been made to Medicare over the last 50 years. And today, it’s still “a work in progress.”
