Medicare Part A

What is Medicare Part A?

Medicare Part A or “hospital insurance”  covers inpatient care, including inpatient hospital stays (of at least one night), skilled nursing facility stays (if they meet criteria), some home health care and hospice care. Find out how to enroll and what Medicare Part A costs.

Note that Medicare does not cover custodial care (ie, help with activities of daily living) in a nursing home or at home.
