Medicare Part A does not cover physician visits, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and durable medical equipment.
With ONLY Medicare Part A, you do not qualify for any type of Medicare Advantage Plan or Medigap Policy.
If you only have Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), you can still qualify for a Stand Alone Prescription Drug Plan. Great news about that is that you can still get help with the cost of your medication through a private insurer. Locally in the Southern Nevada Valley, there are many options available to individuals to enroll into a Stand Alone Prescription Drug Plan.
If you are an individual that wants to know more about what Medicare Part A does and does not cover, please feel free to contact one of our agents here at Comprehensive Medicare Solutions. We can give you resources on what kind of coverage is available to you, and we can help guide in the direction on how to enroll into Medicare Part's A or Part B, Stand Alone Prescription Drug Plans, Medicare Advantage Plans, or a Medigap (Supplement) Policies.
