Medicare is the largest medical program in United States. Medicare is a federal program authorized by Congress and administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Medicare program includes 4 “Parts” :
Medicare Hospital Insurance (Part A),
Medicare Medical Insurance (Part B),
Medicare Advantage (Part C), and
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D).
There are also supplemental insurance plans for Medicare beneficiaries for individual purchase.
