New to Medicare

Key Points​

  • Medicare Part A and Part B enrollment is facilitated through Social Security, while other parts and plans are procured from private insurance carriers.

 

  • Individuals with other credible coverage, like insurance from a large employer, may be eligible to postpone Medicare enrollment past the age of 65 without facing penalties.

 

  • The Initial Enrollment Period, lasting 7 months, is when most people sign up for Medicare, typically occurring around their 65th birthday.
