Basic benefits include Medicare Part A and B co-payment or co-insurance, and three pints of blood. Extra benefits may include Skilled Nursing Facility co-insurance, Medicare Part A and B deductibles, Medicare Part B excess charges, foreign travel emergency services, at-home recovery, preventive care, and some may still cover prescription drugs.
