Medicare and Medicaid are both government sponsored health insurance. Medicare covers people over the age of 65 and people with disabilities. Medicaid covers the poor (income level for acceptance varies by state.)
Yes, Medicare covered all my expenses, except for the deductions and the usual 20% charge. I had a child in 2002 and I only had to pay the doctor $458 which included my $100 deductible for the year. My epidural was also covered. I had to pay only the $700 deductible for the hospital bill. However, Medicare does not cover the care of the child. I hope this was helpful. I had searched for the same question when I was pregnant.
Medicare covers pregnancy expenses as well as any insurance will. I am 19 and just discovered that I am pregnant and was really worried about that as well. Also, another good resource is the WIC program for nutritional support for you and your baby. Get approved as soon as possible to see an ob/gyn.
i m 20 week pregnant and I just found out about Medicare actually i live in Florida - Daytona Beach and i want to apply for the Medicare is it possible to apply for Medicare now and i got the form but I don't know can i just post that form to the office or someone told me that i have to go to social security office for that i m really confused thanks
I think the last two ladies who wrote in are needing MediCAID, not MediCARE. There is a difference. If you are pregnant and have no insurance, and are NOT disabled, you should go to your local welfare office and ask how to sign up for MEDICAID.
I found out late last month that I was pregnant I went straight to my nearest hospital and applied for the PCAP program which is associated with Medicare I am now fully covered I'm not sure what I will eventually have to pay on my own but right now I get blood work checkups and counseling FREE as well as the WIC program and free dental care
I am so surprised to have found this answer., I am disabled in both arms, not totally and am pregnant. I have Medicare because it was a work related injury and my workers comp. has me on permanent disability. So now at five months pregnant I am reassured by the answer a gal gave plus i got some info that ok'd it from Medicare .GOOd
Thank you so much for your answer, I have been trying to find out this answer. I am disabled and on Medicare, Does anyone know if you can get insurance to cover your unborn child? I don't qualify for low income because I sold my house and I am living off that money now. I live in California.
CORRECTION: MEDICARE IS FOR ELDERLY AND DISABLED PEOPLE. AND MEDICAID IS FOR PEOPLE
WHO REALLY NEED IT. (like pregnant women and their babies) Medicaid does cover most pregnancy expenses. As far as I know, they wont cover medicines that you need that can be sold over the counter. My doctor prescribed for me to take iron tablets, and i had to end up paying for those out of my pocket. I also hear that if you
have any hospital or doctors bills that you haven't paid prior to three months of you being accepted or signing up , that they will retro back and pay those for you. But the only bad thing about it is once my baby is born they wont pay for his circumcision.
I am disabled and have medicare and it paid for my me when I was pregnant, as for my son he was under the state of Alabama's program called Allkids... most states I believe have programs to help children you can usually go to the health department and ask about state assisted programs for insurance when in doubt..
dose medicare cover any funeral expenses? no
It is true that a medicare gap insurance could cover some of the extra expenses that you have. However, it will not cover ALL of your extra expenses.
Medicare is for individuals over the age of 65.Are you asking about Medicaid which is state insurance for low-income individuals?
No. Acupuncture is NOT covered by Medicare. Medicare considers it an umproven treatment and specifically says it is an out of pocket expense for Medicare recipients
Medicare C (Medicare Advantage or Medigap) is private insurance that you choose and pay for, to cover expenses not covered by Medicare A & B, such as copays, deductibles etc.
No. Medicare coverage is very limited outside the USA and its territories.
In the U.S., if you have signs and symptoms, Medicare will pay for the test. Otherwise, no.
Most Medicare plans do cover some assisted living facilities. You would have to check with your Medicare plan to see what facilities are covered.
Medicare is medical insurance that the government provides at age 65- but it does NOT cover all medical expenses. A Medicare Supplement plan is additional insurance that you buy from a private company that will cover the medical expenses that Medicare does not cover.
Medicare does not cover maternity. For details on what Medicare does cover, see the link below: http://www.medicare.gov/Publications/Pubs/pdf/10050.pdf
I recently read that Medicaid WILL cover the treatments needed after a miscarriage.
