Advantages Of Medicare Medicare is a program that has been put into place by a state so that it can help to provide medical cover for its aged people and those who have different disabilities and might not be able to pay their own bills due to their vulnerable circumstances. Usually, the government is able to meet the cost of having to pay for the medical care received by the aged and those with disabilities by ensuring that all people in the country pay a monthly subscription by from their salaries which is automatically deducted and also from all taxes obtained. The most common Medicare service provided is the Hospital Insurance which provides health insurance for all patients that are either old or disabled and are receiving medical attention at home by an authorized nurse, being attended to in a special nursing facility that is registered or are admitted in a hospital. This Hospital Insurance is only funded by payroll taxes deducted from the people’s salaries at the end of the month or after a given period of time but on a regular basis. The second example of Medicare is the common Medical Insurance which is the most expansive form of Medicare and covers the supply of medicine at a subsidized price, the all services that can be provided by the doctor including consultation or therapy as well as and other medical checkups such as scanning and x-ray. Medical Insurance also covers all lab tests that are to be done on the patient, chemotherapy in case it is required, dialysis for patients with diabetes especially because the disease is most common in people at an older age and also vaccinations for young children to prevent them from getting infected. The funds that are used to pay for the Medical Insurance by the government usually come from premiums that are paid by beneficiaries of the program as well as the general revenues collected by the taxman. The government may also contract a private company and give it the mandate to provide Medical Insurance and Hospital Insurance policies for the elderly as well as disabled patients, and this programme is referred to as the Medicare Advantage Plan. This Medicare Advantage Plan include services such as Special Needs Plans which covers all patients with special needs, the Preferred Provider Organizations Plan and the Health Maintenance Organizations. There is also the Prescription Drug coverage which allows for patients to get access to the different medical products that have been prescribed by the doctor, and this cover is mainly funded by premiums paid, state payments as well as general revenues from tax.
