To enroll in Medicare:
- You must be 65 or older to be eligible for Part A and Part B. Also, if you have been receiving Social Security disability for 24 months you are eligible for Medicare regardless of age.
- If you’re already getting benefits from Social Security, you’ll automatically get Part A and Part B starting the first day of the month you turn 65. If you’re under 65 and have a disability, you’ll automatically get Part A and Part B after you get disability benefits from Social Security for 24 months.
- If you’re automatically enrolled, you’ll get your red, white, and blue Medicare card in the mail 3 months before your 65th birthday or 25th months of disability benefits. If you do nothing, you’ll keep Part B and will have to pay Part B premiums through your Social Security benefits. You can opt out of Part B if you are on a group plan through an employer or a spouse’s plan without incurring a penalty.
- You can also visit www.Medicare.gov or call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213
Once you enroll you can look at Arizona Medicare Plans. You can look at a Medigap plan and a Prescription Drug or an Arizona Advantage plan.
