The State Health Plan will be your primary coverage and Medicare will be secondary.
Medicare consists of two parts:
Part A: Pays inpatient hospital bills and skilled nursing facility bills. It is normally provided at no charge to those eligible for Medicare.
Part B: Pays outpatient hospital,
doctor and other professional bills and requires a monthly payment from
the person eligible for Medicare.
