The Area Agency on Aging understands the complexities of Medicare, and we’re always ready to share our knowledge with you.  We encourage you to call us at 937-223-HELP and speak to one of our experts.

Medicare is health insurance for people:

  • age 65 and older;
  • under age 65 with certain disabilities; and
  • of any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), which is permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant.

There are four different parts of Medicare to help cover specific services.

Part A – hospital insurance

Part B – medical insurance

Part C – Medicare Advantage Plans (like an HMO or PPO)

Part D – Medicare prescription drug coverage

People with limited income and resources may qualify for help paying medical expenses, including prescriptions and Medicare premiums, deductibles, and copayments.  The financial qualifications change annually, so contact us for current eligibility guidelines and information on the application process.
