Request Description

People age 65 or older, people under age 65 with certain disabilities, and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease are eligible for Medicare. Medicaid is available only to certain low-income individuals and families who income fits the eligibility qualifications that are recognized by federal and state law.

Medicare has two different parts to its services.  They each have their own range of health care benefits.  Medicare Part A helps cover inpatient care in hospitals, including critical access hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities. It also helps cover hospice care and some home health care. Beneficiaries must meet certain conditions to get these benefits.  Medicare Part B helps cover doctors' services and outpatient care. It also covers some other medical services that Part A doesn't cover, such as some of the services of physical and occupational therapists, and some home health care.  Medicaid's eligibility and services are different in every state. Medicaid provides emergency services for certain persons.  Medicaid for kids covers all medicine and office visits to doctors.  They also cover dentist visits and eye doctor visits for kids.

I think Lab and X-rays is something that should be covered in Medicare and Medicaid services. I also think Dental coverage for adults would be great. Transportation to medical appointments will be beneficial for many Medicare/Medicaid carriers.  I think that plastic surgery procedures should not be covered by Medicare or Medicaid.  Any type of a procedure that is not considered a medical necessity, should not be covered. Medicare and Medicaid should only provide medical coverage for those, who need preventative treatment(s) or treatment(s) for existing medical condition(s).
