Medicare Part B is Medical Insurance

Medicare Part B covers services from doctors and other providers, outpatient care, home health care, durable medical equipment, and some preventive services like vaccines and screenings.

Everyone pays a premium for part B. Luckily, you’ll pay nothing for most preventative services and some people will qualify for Part B cost assistance based on income via state-based Medicare Savings Programs.
