Medicare vs. Medicaid: The Difference - WMUR9

They have similar names, and are often confused with each other, but Medicare and Medicaid are two different healthcare programs targeting two different segments of the American population. Basically, Medicare is the nation’s healthcare program for senior citizens age 65 and over, while Medicaid is a program which provides healthcare to needy children and adults. Medicare is run entirely by the federal government, while Medicaid is jointly administered by the federal and state governments. That’s a basic definition of the two programs, but for additional details and eligibility criteria for both programs read this WMUR9 (NH) article by certified financial planner Marc Hebert.
