Medicare is a national health insurance program in the United States, begun in 1966 under the Social Security Administration and now administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). It primarily provides health insurance for Americans age 65 and older, persons with disability status as determined by the Social Security Administrations, as well as people with end stage renal disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

The Minnesota Department of Commerce and the federal government both regulate Medicare Cost and Medicare Supplement and Select insurance plans. The federal government is responsible for the oversight of Medicare Advantage and Part D plans.
