Special Enrollment Period - Part B

It is possible to sign up anytime you are covered through an active or current employment or within the period of 8 months from when the group healthcare coverage or employment ends, whichever comes first. In case you are disabled, but still working or you are covered by a working family member’s healthcare, Special Enrollment Period rules will apply to you.

It is possible to easily apply for Medicare on the Internet while filing for disability or retirement. A person can also apply for only Medicare if he does not wish to receive the retirement benefits. If you don’t want to apply online, it is possible to make an appointment by simply calling 1-800-772-1213. If you’re hearing impaired, you can give a call on 'TTY’ number - 1-800-325-0778. In case you have been receiving Social Security benefits, you will be instantly and automatically enrolled in Medicare (Both Parts A and B).

Since you are required to pay a standard premium for Medicare Part B coverage, you can turn it down. A few weeks before you are eligible for Medicare, you will receive an email or postal mail with detailed information about the process. It is worth mentioning that residents of Puerto Rico and Foreign countries do not automatically receive Part B coverage. They need to choose this benefit.
