Part A

Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) helps cover your inpatient care in the following facilities:

  • Acute Hospitals
  • Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs)
  • Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs)
  • Religious Non-Medical Health Care
  • Rehabilitation Hospitals
  • Psychiatric Hospitals
  • Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) (not custodial or long term care)

It also helps cover hospice care and some home health care associated with a qualifying inpatient hospital stay, however, you must meet certain conditions. A person who is entitled to Social Security monthly benefits or is a qualified railroad retirement beneficiary is automatically entitled to Medicare Part A beginning with the first day of the month in which the individual attains age 65.
