New to Medicare?
Medicare is a US Federal health insurance program that was developed in 1966 to provide access to all retired Americans.
Medicare is available for:
- People age 65 and older
- Certain younger people with disabilities
- People with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a transplant, sometimes referred to as ESRD)
- People with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also called Lou Gehrig’s disease)
Original Medicare started with Parts A and B and offered basic coverage. This required the beneficiary to pay for the additional costs. To help offset these high costs, private insurers like Vibra Health Plan began offering other Medicare options.
Parts of Medicare
There are four parts of Medicare that help to cover the costs of your care.
