Medicare vs. Medicaid?

While they may sound alike, Medicare and Medicaid are actually two different programs. Both can help you pay for healthcare and medical expenses.

Medicaid is a federal public assistance healthcare program based largely on financial need that works differently in each state.

Medicare, on the other hand, is an age-based federal health insurance program that guarantees coverage for individuals ages 65 and over and some younger people with disabilities. Do You Know the Right Questions to ask Your Doctor?
