Most people qualify for all Medicare programs if they're 65 or older and are citizens or permanent residents of the United States. However, eligibility rules and availability are different for each plan within Medicare.

For Part A, people are automatically eligible without paying any premium if, in addition to the age and residency requirements, they worked and paid Social Security taxes for at least ten years. If not, they may still buy into Part A coverage for a yearly premium.
For Part B, every citizen and legal resident over 65 is eligible. Even if someone is under age 65, he or she may qualify for both Part A and B if he or she has been receiving Social Security disability benefits for two years or has a chronic kidney disease.
If they're eligible for Parts A and B, they can choose to receive that coverage through a Part C Medicare Advantage managed care plan, if a plan they like is available where they live.
Anyone eligible for Medicare may purchase a Part D prescription drug plan offered by private insurance companies in the state where they live.
