Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)
Part B covers certain doctors' services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services.
Medicare Part D (Prescription Drug Coverage)
Helps cover the cost of prescription drugs (including many recommended shots or vaccines).
