What is the difference between Medicare and Medicaid?

Medicare and Medicaid are both government health insurance programs. Medicare is a federally funded program primarily for adults 65 and over. Medicaid is a state-funded program for low-income individuals and families. It’s possible to be eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, (known as “dual eligibility”) and they will work together to provide coverage at a very low cost.
