Turning 65 soon? If you are less than three months away from turning 65, you’re already eligible for Medicare.
Unless you continue working and have health insurance from your employer or spouse, now is the time to choose a plan that best fits your health needs. Medicare plans may be better than your current employer benefits so it’s a good idea to compare before making a decision.
Your Medicare deadlines:
If you don’t enroll in a Medicare plan or notify Medicare that you will be receiving benefits from an employer or spouse before your deadline, you may have late enrollment penalties.
There are several ways to learn about your Medicare options:
- You can find more information on the Medicare website – www.medicare.gov
- Speak to a Medicare advisor anytime by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048), 24 hours a day/7 days a week
- You can contact the Medicare plans directly for information about the benefits they offer
Speak with a licensed insurance agent:
At no cost to you, you can speak with a licensed insurance agent in your area. They can help you compare the Medicare plans available. They can also schedule in-home appointments and help you enroll.
