AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

Does Medicare cover all of my health care costs?

En español | Medicare does not cover all of your health care costs. Depending on which plan you choose, you might have to share in the cost of your care by paying premiums, deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. The amount of some of these payments can change.

Most people who qualify for Medicare don’t pay a monthly premium for Part A, but they do for Part B and Part D or a Medicare Advantage plan.

You can call Medicare at 800-633-4227 or go the to check on current deductibles, co-payments, and premiums, and what you will need to pay.
