Hello, and welcome again to the blog for NeedMedicareHelp.com,
where we put the care back in Medicare
I know you have been waiting with intense anticipation for the next educational installment for Medicare basics. OK, well maybe not but here it is!
Medicare Part B is otherwise known as the Medical Insurance part of Medicare. It helps cover doctors, and other health care providers’ services, hospital outpatient care, durable medical equipment, and home health care.
Another key component to part B Medicare would be the emphasis on preventative care. It benefits the Medicare system to detect and prevent medical conditions to keep medical expenses low.
Part B Medicare requires that a premium be paid monthly, and is usually taken from the beneficiaries’ Medicare benefits. The premium is determined by the Medicare system itself. Medicare Part B is the component of Medicare which prompts the decision making process to either purchase a Medicare Supplement policy (Medigap Policy) or a Medicare Advantage policy. We will talk more about these later.
As always, the recommendation would be to consult an insurance professional (me J) and if clarification is needed, we will contact Medicare.
Until next time when we talk about Medicare Part “C”, be blessed, be happy, and take care. If you should need me
