Medicare Part B


MEDICARE PART B PROGRAM

Part B is government-based outpatient health care program for senior citizens over the age of 65. When a senior citizen turns 65 and begins to receive Medicare his or her benefits are generally divided into two categories, inpatient and outpatient services. Part B is the payment system for outpatient products and services. Providers, such as independent community pharmacists, receive direct payments from the government for certain outpatient products and services provided to Part B beneficiaries. Within the Part B program, independent community pharmacists primarily provide diabetes supplies, inhalation, immunosuppressive medications, and vaccines.
