4 Facts About Medicare You May Not Know
- There is no family coverage in Medicare. Each individual must meet eligibility on their own. This also means you each pay separate co-pays, premiums and deductibles.
- Medicare is not free - you still have premiums and deductibles. But if you have a limited income there are services available that can help reduce your costs.
- If you live abroad and need to sign up for Medicare, you can do so with the help of the American Embassy or consulate in your host country.
- Medicare A & B does not cover routine dental and vision care or coverage beyond 100 days in a nursing home (and that is only if the care qualifies as "skilled"). In Oklahoma, Medicare does not cover assisted living at all.
