What is Medicare Part A?

  • Medicare with Melissa

Medicare Part A helps to cover inpatient care. Medicare Part A does not pay 100% of the cost. There are deductibles and copays that you might have to pay.

  • Hospital Coverage: Hospitalization, per benefit period include; semi-private room and board, drugs, general nursing, and miscellaneous hospital services and supplies.  
  • Skilled Nursing Facility Coverage: Per benefit period, you must have been in a hospital for at least 3 days. You must enter a Medicare approved facility within 30 days after your hospital discharge and you must require skilled nursing care.  
  • Home health services: Include part-time skilled nursing care, speech therapy, durable medical equipment, medical supplies and other services.  
  • Hospice: You must meet Medicare’s requirements including a doctor’s certificate of terminal illness
  • Blood: Medicare Part A does help to cover the cost of blood.  

Medicare Part A helps to cover inpatient hospital care. This includes critical access hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. It does not cover custodial or long-term care. Medicare Part A also helps cover hospice services, blood and some home health care. To get these benefits, you must meet certain conditions. Review Medicare Part A and Part B Benefits Chart.

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.


Oh my gosh!! I was so confused about the Medicare Supplement process. I am turning 65 soon and am retired and have always had insurance thru my former employer. I didn’t know a thing about going on Medicare and was struggling to sort it all out.

A friend of mine recommended contacting Senior HealthCare Solutions, so I did. Melissa was FANTASTIC!! She was professional, responsive, caring and friendly. She explained the steps I needed to take, gathered my information, helped me choose good plans for MY specific needs and took care of my applications over the phone. 1-2-3, eesy-peesy and I was done!! And it didn’t cost me a DIME!!! WOW!!! I HIGHLY recommend Senior Healthcare Solutions for anyone who’s overwhelmed with making the right choices with Medicare Supplemental Insurance and Rx coverage. It’ll take a load off your mind!
