What is Original Medicare?

Original Medicare – or “traditional Medicare” – is the fee-for-service program in which the government pays for health care costs you incur. The coverage – which includes Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B – allows you to see a doctor anywhere in the country (as long as the doctor treats Medicare patients).
