Medicare is a federal health insurance program- funded in part by employers through a payroll tax- that is divided into four parts. Part A is hospital insurance; Part B is medical insurance; Part C is Medicare Advantage, and Part D is prescription drug coverage.

North Carolina residents can speak to a knowledgeable representative through the NC Department of Insurance Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP).  They can assist with many of your Medicare questions.
