Medicare is a federal program, managed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), that provides health insurance to eligible United States citizens and legal permanent residents of five or more continuous years. You're eligible for Medicare if you're 65 or older or under 65 through disability. You may also qualify for Medicare at any age if you have end-stage renal disease requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease).
