When Should I Enroll in Medicare?

Your initial enrollment period includes the month of your 65th birthday plus the three months before and the three months after your birthday month.  

What Are the Parts of Medicare?

Original Medicare has two primary components:

  • Medicare Part A (Hospital insurance)

    Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care.

  • Medicare Part B (Medical insurance)

    Part B covers certain doctor and other healthcare provider services, outpatient care, durable medical equipment and preventive services.

What’s Not Covered by Medicare?

 

Note: Original Medicare from the federal government does not cover everything.

You’ll want to consider supplemental plans for prescription drug coverage, for example.

You may also want separate dental and vision insurance plans.
