Monthly Tip: Taxes: Marriage Penalty or Bonus?
(Updated: 10/12/2015)

Medicare Parts A and B (original Medicare) cover which of the following?

  1. Prescription drugs
  2. Long-term nursing home stays
  3. Vision and dental services
  4. None of the above


Answer: D. Medicare Part A is free to almost every Medicare enrollee but only covers limited services such as inpatient hospital care, x-rays, and lab testing. Part B carries a monthly premium and covers services such as regular doctor visits and outpatient hospital care. Neither A nor B covers prescription drugs or vision and dental services. Long-term care coverage is available but not as part of Medicare.
