 Medicare Works for Maine

* Medicare insured 306,420 of Maine’s residents in 2015—23% of the state’s residents.

*Medicare ensures that Maine residents can receive necessary—and often lifesaving—medical care that many would otherwise not be able to afford.

*232,645 of Maine’s Medicare beneficiaries were 65 or older in 2013—80% of beneficiaries.

*Medicare provided $2.3 billion in benefits to Maine residents in 2009—20.4% of all healthcare spending in the state.

Medicaid Works for Maine

 *Medicaid insures 265,000 low-income seniors, children, pregnant women, adults, and people with disabilities in our state—one in every five Mainers.

*6 in 10 Maine babies, 4 in 10 Maine children, and 2 in 3 Maine nursing home residents receive support from Medicaid every year.

*Medicaid provides a healthy start for babies, preventative care for children and adults, and assistance for seniors and people with disabilities to help them live as independently as possible.
