In order to use their Medicare eligibility, Illinois residents must qualify for Social Security benefits. There are four parts to Medicare, which are:
- Part A – Hospital insurance. Most individuals aged 65 or older are eligible for Medicare Part A based on their own employment or their spouse’s employment, and most have enough Social Security credits built up in order to receive Part A for free.
- Part B – Medical insurance. Medicare Part B can be enrolled in if you receive Part A, although there is a monthly fee.
- Part C – Formally known as Medical + Choice. Those enrolled in Parts A and B can choose to receive their healthcare coverage through a private provider organization. This is also known as a Medicare Advantage plan.
- Part D – Prescription Drug coverage. This helps cover the cost of prescription medications.
