Part A (Hospital Insurance) Helps pay for care in hospitals as an inpatient,... skilled nursing facilities, hospice care, and some home health care, but not Long Term Care.   Most people get Part A automatically when they turn age 65 at no charge, since they or a spouse paid Medicare taxes while they were working.  You need to sign up close to your 65th birthday, even if you will not be retired by that time. (If you are getting Social Security benefits when you turn 65, your Medicare Hospital Benefits - Part A - start automatically.) (Medicare and You)

Part B helps pay for these covered services and supplies when they are medically necessary.
