Applying for Medicare

August 14, 2011 by admin

You can file for Medicare online when you file for retirement or disability. You also can file for just Medicare if you do not wish to start receiving your retirement benefits.

If you do not wish to apply online you can make an appointment by calling 1-800-772-1213. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call the "TTY" number, 1-800-325-0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on business days.

If you are already receiving Social Security benefits, you will automatically be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B. However, because you must pay a premium for Part B coverage, you have the option of turning it down.
