People With Medicare
What Will It Cost?
Medicare pays for most of the costs of services and items it covers. But benefits vary. You may have to pay some of the cost, depending on what services you get.
Knowing how much Medicare covers will help you save money and help reduce fraud and abuse in Medicare.
How do I pay for services Medicare does not cover?
When you need services and Medicare does not pay for them, you have three options:
Pay for them on your own.
Use long-term care insurance, if you bought a policy before you were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
See if Medicaid will pay. Medicaid is a government health program for people with low incomes. If you have questions, you may be able to get personal help.
