We know that Medicare has several different parts. Today we will be focus on Medicare Part A of Original Medicare.
Medicare Part A has a Hospital Deductible of $ 1,364.00 per benefit period deductible. You might be wondering what a benefit period is ? Well it is a continuous or unbroken number of days within a calendar year. So a person in the hospital as an inpatient on different occasions during a year could face several Part A Hospital Deductibles. It is very important to understand the potential Part A Deductible financial responsibility you might face. Therefore, it is very important to understand that Medicare does not cover all potential costs.
