Understanding the ABCD's of Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that covers millions of Americans. The basic health insurance provision is part of Social Security. To be eligible for Medicare, you must be 65 or older, a legal U.S. citizen, and a resident for 5 years.

We have been working with our health benefits consultants at Mercer to provide a Medicare primer for those who may be interested in learning more about Medicare coverage.
