What is Medicare?

Medicare is a broad program of health insurance designed to assist the nation's elderly to meet hospital, medical, and other health costs. Medicare is available to most individuals 65 years of age and older. Medicare has also been extended to persons under age 65 who are receiving disability benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board and those having End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). There are approximately 45 million people enrolled in Medicare. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is a federal agency within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that manages Medicare.
