Is the word 'Medicare' a proper noun? Why is it always capitalized?
Yes, Medicare is a noun
a government program of MEDIcal CARE for seniors over the age of 65.
It's capitalised because it isn't a common noun but a name and only applies in the USA.
Depends which country you are from; Some countries have Medicare for all ages
