Getting Health Insurance Coverage with Medicare
One of the risks many have to face in the event of loss of income is losing their health insurance. The Affordable Care Act and programs such as Medicare and Medicaid are designed to help reduce the risk of losing health insurance coverage to a minimum. These programs offer proper health coverage and have been the cause of the booming growth of healthcare and health law jobs these past few years. According to studies complied by Hofstra Law, there are now more than 60 million Americans covered by Medicaid; more than ever before.
While Medicaid provides health coverage for those earning less than $32,252.50 per year, Medicare is designed more for general use. This is why the requirements for Medicare are more relaxed and easier to meet, creating opportunities to more people to secure good healthcare insurance without hassle.
