If you’re enrolled in Medicaid, then you may be wondering if you’re still eligible for Medicare. Fortunately, this may be possible for you!
Who Needs Medicare?
Many people choose Medicare for their health insurance during retirement as Medicare is intended for those that are 65 and older. In some scenarios, it is possible to enroll in Medicare before the age of 65.
Medicare has many different parts to it, which is one of the reasons why most people choose this health insurance. You can have inpatient coverage, outpatient coverage, prescription drug coverage, and more. Plus, many people are automatically enrolled, so you can receive Medicare benefits through no effort on your part if you qualify to be enrolled automatically!
Who Needs Medicaid?
Medicaid is intended for individuals in low income brackets. Unlike Medicare, there are no age limits for Medicaid. Medicaid is a great option for those that would not otherwise be able to afford health insurance.
It is entirely possible to enroll in both Medicare and Medicaid. This is called dual enrollment.
Dual enrollment is an excellent way to make sure that you get as many benefits as possible. If you don’t get a specific benefit through your Medicare policy, then it’s possible that you could get that benefit through your Medicaid policy. Making sure that you get as many benefits as possible is important, so dual enrollment is a great way to accomplish that.
