Care 411

Part A

Part A deals with inpatient care in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and critical access hospitals, but does not include long-term care. Part A covers only the medically essential services like blood transfusions, home health services, hospital stays, and hospice care. Medicare Part A covers your stay at a skilled nursing facility for treating an ailment for a maximum length of 100 days. The first 20 days are fully covered under the plan, and for the remaining 80 days you will be required to make a part of the payment. You are automatically enrolled for Part A coverage when you join Medicare. Most people do not have to pay a monthly payment or premium. One must meet certain conditions to get these benefits.  (See also Part BPart CPart D)
