Medicare Part A (hospital)

 

Part A is hospital insurance that helps cover inpatient care in hospitals, skilled nursing facility, hospice, and home health care.

In general, Part A covers:

  • Inpatient care in hospitals (such as critical access hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and long-term care hospitals)
  • Inpatient care in a skilled nursing facility (not custodial or long term care)
  • Hospice care services
  • Home health care services
  • Inpatient care in a Religious Non-medical Health Care Institution
It is important for you to understand that Medicare does not cover everything, and it does not pay the total cost for most services or supplies that are covered.
