What is Medicare?

Medicare is a national United States health insurance program. You're entitled to Medicare if you're at least 65 years old and a U.S. citizen, or a permanent legal resident for the past five years. Medicare also covers some people with disabilities under age 65. People who receive Social Security disability insurance usually become eligible for Medicare after being disabled for two years consecutively. Those with end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) can be eligible immediately.

Health Insurance Plans

MemorialCare Medical Group accepts most major HMO, PPO and EPO health plans, as well as Medicare, private indemnity and supplemental insurance plans. Visit your health insurance carrier’s website or call the number found on the back of your health insurance card to ensure your provider is in MemorialCare’s network. Applicable copayments and fees for services not covered by insurance are collected at the time of visit. We accept cash, personal check, and credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa).
