Medicare is a health insurance program for people 65 years of age and older, some disabled people under 65 years of age, and people with end-stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure treated with dialysis or a transplant). Medicare is divided into two parts: Part A (hospital) insurance and Part B (medical) insurance.

If you don't qualify for Medicare, you and your family, as Washington residents, may qualify for Apple Health (Medicaid) or another program through Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). Washington Connection will help you determine what you qualify for.
