Medicare Part B
Supplemental Medical Insurance (Medicare Part B) includes coverage for:
1. Physician services (some chiropractic, podiatry, dental, optometry, psychological services, services provided by social workers, x-rays, and labs)
2. Outpatient services (emergency room, same day surgery, ambulances, psychiatric services, dialysis, blood transfusions, drugs which cannot be self-administered, outpatient rehabilitation services)
3. Home medical equipment
Even with Medicare, one is still responsible for a deductible, coinsurance, and copayments.
Neither Medicare Part A nor Part B Medicare covers long-term care (a.k.a. custodial care), dentures, eye exams, hearing aids, routine foot care, acupuncture, and most dental care.
