Turning 65 and medicare eligibility

Turning 65 and Medicare eligibility

  • If you worked more than 10 years (40 SS quarters)

    OR

  • Before age 65 if:

    • Disabled and have collected SS disability for 24 months.

    • Have permanent kidney failure (end-stage renal disease).

    • Have ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and have collected SS disability for 5 months.


Turning 65 and medicare eligibility continued

Turning 65 and Medicare eligibility (continued)

  • If already drawing SS benefits, you will automatically receive a Medicare card about three months before your birthday month.

    • For both Part A and Part B to begin, do nothing.

    • To waive Part B, return the enclosed card to SS.

  • If not yet drawing SS benefits and want Medicare to start at age 65, you must enroll in Part A and Part B through SS.

    • Can enroll online at www.ssa.gov, over the phone at 1-800-772-1213, or in-person at a local SS office up to three months before the 65th birthday month.


Medicare plan options

Medicare plan options

  • Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) covers about 50% of your overall health care costs.

  • To help cover the remaining costs, there are two options:

    • Enroll in a plan that pays second after Medicare pays first (a Medigap plan – i.e., a supplement).

    • Enroll in a plan that contracts with Medicare to administer your Medicare benefits (a Medicare Advantage plan).
