En español | Medicare Part A doesn’t cover everything. Items and services that aren’t covered include, but aren’t limited to:
- Private duty nursing
- A television or telephone in your room or personal care items such as razors or slipper socks
- A private room, unless medically necessary
- Custodial care, assisted living, adult daycare or reimbursement for family-member services
- The first three pints of blood, unless you arrange to replace it. The doctor services you get while you are in a hospital are covered under Part B.
