Medicare Part A coverage is responsible for hospital-related expenses.  In most cases, Medicare Part A doesn’t require a monthly premium. You paid for this during your working years by paying a minimum of 10 years of Social Security taxes through payroll.

Consequently, most people earn Medicare Part A.

In the event someone didn’t earn Medicare Part A, it can be purchased.  For those who need to purchase Medicare Part A they will spend up to $423 per month in 2020.

Below are some examples of Medicare Part A covered services:

  • Inpatient hospital care
  • Skilled nursing facility care
  • Blood
  • Hospice care
  • Home health services
