Hi Anon

Thanks for your questions! 

Medicare generally covers what an insurance carrier would but you can talk to your local social security office to know for sure and you will need a referral of course, from your doctor. 

The phone number for social security is 1-800-772-1213 if that is easier and you can apply for medicare at your local office or on-line here: http://www.ssa.gov/medicareonly/

As a rule, you must be 65 years or older, or have a form or disability. 

Does this help?
