Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older, under age 65 with certain disabilities, and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant). While NC Innovations services are not provided under the Medicare program, some NC Innovations participants may have Medicare coverage in addition to Medicaid coverage.
