Does Medicare cover all of my medical expenses?

Medicare covers 80% of approved expenses, after you meet an annual deductible.

When you sign up for Medicare, you will have options on the amount you pay:

  • You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount after you meet the annual deductible
  • You can buy supplemental insurance to pay for the 20% out-of-pocket cost and the deductible, or you may qualify for Medicaid to pay for the 20% and the deductible
  • You may not have any out-of-pocket expense if you join a Medicare Advantage Plan
