What is Medicare?

Medicare is a health insurance program for:

  • People age 65 and over
  • People under 65 with certain disabilities
  • People of any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant)

Since 1965, Medicare has helped millions of Americans pay for the health care services they need. You likely have already paid into the program through Social Security.
