Original Medicare is a federally funded health insurance plan. It's designed for people age 65 or older and some disabled people under age 65. Original Medicare is made of Part A and Part B. Medicare Part A pays for a portion of inpatient hospital care, skilled nursing facility care, and hospice care. Medicare Part B pays for a portion of outpatient surgery, doctor visits, and many other Medicare services not covered by Part A.
