What Is Medicare Insurance?

Medicare is a federally regulated program that provides health insurance for all Americans aged 65 and older, certain individuals with disabilities, and those with End-Stage Renal Disease and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Funding for Medicare comes from payroll taxes and monthly premiums paid by the program’s enrollees.
