Original Medicare Enrollment
Original Medicare Enrollment in parts A and B is automatic for those drawing Social Security. Those people who are not that are not will need to enroll.
If you’re already collecting Railroad Retirement Board or Social Security retirement benefits when you turn 65, you will automatically be enrolled Medicare Part A . If you are under 65 and you receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits, you will automatically be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B after 24 months of disability benefits.
You will need to sign up for Medicare part B, if you are not receiving retirement benefits before age 65 or if you qualify for Medicare through disability. Please note, you can sign up during your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). This is the seven-month enrollment period that begins three months before you turn 65. This enrollment period includes the month you turn 65, and ends three months later.
