In brief: Paid in

Medicate is given to disabled citizens if diagnosed as child otherwise it is earned by paying into the system. Part b the part that pays doctors requires a monhly payment when eligible.
If you get medicare early due to soc security disability and later setermined not disabled then medicare is cancelled.
