Part B Medical
Necessary services that are required to treat a medical condition or disease are covered by Medicare Part B. This class includes preventive services, screenings, vaccinations, and mental health counseling.
With Part B, you can keep up with your wellness screenings and yearly check-ups while also taking advantage of treatments like flu shots that could help you avoid getting sick in the first place.
Medicare Part B insurance pays 80% of the Medicare-approved expenses. Although not all these services are provided in an outpatient setting, most are.
There are a few exceptions to this; these include visitations to an emergency room and the services you receive there, even if you later become an inpatient at the hospital.
We should also note that it is not necessary to be 65 or older to qualify for Medicare Part B coverage.
If you are under 65 and have received Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits for at least 24 months, you are qualified for Medicare Part B.
Regardless of age, those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are also qualified for Medicare Part B.
If Medicare intimidates you, you’re not alone. There are a lot of technicalities surrounding Medicare, and most of the time, it is much easier to save yourself the hassle and employ the capable hands of an experienced health insurance broker like the ones you’d find at Mark Deno Medicare Agent Brokers.
