What impact has Medicare had on the healthcare system?
It has improved the health of the elderly in cardiac care and giving them incentive to see care when they need it. The elderly would not ordinarily seek care for an illness unless they are so sick that they feel like they are going to die without it. It is just not affordable for them. It has also raised the cost of health care in the USA.

Does medacare pay for the hole total when you have surgery i can not aford medicare plus sup health insurance?
Unfortunately, Medicare does not pay 100% of expenses for surgeries, whether inpatient or outpatient. If you are on a fixed income and healthcare is too expensive, you may want to look into Medical Assistance. Another option is to look into local Medicare Advantage plans - often they offer more than regular Medicare for just slightly more money than Medicare.
No, being qualified for Medicare does not mean you are automatically qualified for Medicaid. Medicare is a health care system for most older people who paid into the system when they were working. Medicaid is a system for the indigent/needy funded by the government -- you must have only a very small amount of money and no property to qualify for Medicaid.
