Medicare Part A covers hospitalization, and short-term nursing home or home health care for rehabilitation. Refer to the Franklin County Law Library Medicaid guide for information on long term nursing home or in home care through the Passport program.  

Part A is financed through FICA taxes, these are the payroll taxes we all pay during our working years. There are no monthly premiums for Part A, but there are deductibles.
