Medicare enrollment is the total number of Medicare beneficiaries. This total can be broken out into two subgroups: those enrolled in Original Medicare and those enrolled in Medicare Advantage and Other Health Plans.
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for individuals over age 65 years. Knowing the number of older adults who are enrolled in Medicare helps identify those who are potentially without health insurance.
