YEs, get Medicare part B, it pays the Doctors. Part A you get automatically, and that pays the hospitals. There is a deductible on the part A, if you are ever hospitalized.

IF You don't get part B WHEN YOU BECOME ELIGIBLE, YOU WILL BE PENALIZED. WHen you do,sign up, and Part D also, you will be penalized. Tghere is a deductible also on Part B.

I am on SSDI, and I have medicare taken out of my check. I worked many years and paid into medicare. Why do I have to pay it again

Hi Lauri,
You have paid into Medicare Part A, which is the hospitalization benefit. Medicare Part B is a separate insurance benefit that covers doctors visits and medical equipment, and it comes with a monthly premium.
