Medicare: A federally provided health insurance program for individuals 65 and older, individuals of any age with permanent kidney failure, and individuals with certain disabilities.
Many of us believe that we know all we need to know about Medicare. But I’m guessing there are many individuals out there who would never have thought that Medicare could be used by a 29-year-old with kidney failure, or a 41-year-old with disabilities. And this is completely understandable, because the way Medicare is talked about within society makes it seem as if it is only for retired folks. This is most often the case, but certainly not always the case. It begs the question, “What else don’t I know about Medicare?”
