The Federal Health Insurance Program known as Medicare started in 1965. Medicare Insurance is split into two parts:
- Part A (which includes expenses related to Hospital visits, etc).
- Part B (which includes other medical expenses related to Doctor visits, etc).
An individual is automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A when they:
- Turn 65, (this happens on the first of the month they turn 65, not on the birthday itself).
- Are under age 65 and have received disability benefits from Social Security for 2 years.
- Are under age 65 and have Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or permanent kidney failure.
An individual is eligible to enroll in Medicare Part B after:
- They enroll in Medicare Part A.
- They (or their spouse) retire and they are no longer covered by health insurance through their employer.

Information about Medicare Insurance premiums:
- Medicare Part A doesn't have any premiums.
- $105 is the average monthly premium in 2015 for Medicare Part B. For some of those enrolled however, they will be required to pay a monthly premium that's been adjusted to reflect their income.
