AARP's Medicare Question and Answer Tool

What is Medicare Part A?

 

En español | Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) helps pay for inpatient hospital care and some other care, such as home health, hospice, and skilled nursing facility care. Most people don’t pay a premium for Part A because they already paid for it through payroll taxes while working. If you do not have premium-free Part A, you may be able to buy it under certain conditions.
