Medicare And Medicaid

Medicare and Medicaid are very different. Medicaid is a federal program for low-income, financially needy people, set up by the federal government and administered differently in each state.

Eligibility for Medicare, also a federal program, is not tied to individual need. Rather, it is an entitlement program; you are entitled to it because you or your spouse paid for it through employment or self-employment taxes.
