Medicare Part A generally covers inpatient hospital stays, skilled nursing care, hospice care, and limited home health-care services. You generally won’t have to pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part A if you or your spouse paid Medicare payroll taxes for 40 quarters or more. But you do need to pay deductibles before Medicare will cover any hospitalization costs.
You cannot be denied Medicare Part A coverage. You may go to any qualified health care provider in the United States who participates in the Medicare program and is accepting Medicare patients.
