Medicare Information -
When can you sign up for Part A & Part B? When can you first get Medicare? When you're first eligible for Medicare, you
have a 7-month Initial Enrollment Period to sign up for Part A and/or Part B.

If you're eligible for Medicare when you turn 65, you can sign up during a 7-month period. It begins begins 90 days
(3 months) before
the month you turn 65, includes the month you turn 65, and ends 90 days (3 months) after the
month you turn 65. 
If you are eligible for Medicare you can sign up for free Part A any time during or after your Initial
Enrollment Period starts. Your coverage start date depends on when you enroll. 

If you have to buy Part A and/or Part B, you can only sign up during a valid enrollment period. In most cases, if you
don’t sign up for Medicare Part B when you’re first eligible, you’ll ave to pay a late enrollment penalty and could have
a gap in your health coverage. 
If you didn't sign up for Medicare Part A and/or Part B (for which you must pay
premiums) when you were first eligible, and you aren’t eligible for Special Enrollment Period, you can sign up during
the General Enrollment Period between January 1–March 31st each year. 
In that case your coverage will start July 1.
You may have to pay a higher premium for late enrollment in Part A and/or a higher premium for late enrollment in
Part B. 
Once your Initial Enrollment Period ends, you may have the chance to sign up for Medicare during a Special
Enrollment Period.

If you're covered under a group health plan based on current employment, you have a Special Enrollment Period to
sign up for Part A and/or Part B any time as long as you or your spouse (or family member if you're disabled) is
working, and you're covered by a group health plan through the employer or union based on that work. 
You also
have an 8-month Special Enrollment Period to sign up for Part A and/or Part B that starts the month after the
employment ends or the group health plan insurance based on current employment ends, whichever happens first.
Usually, you don't pay a late enrollment penalty if you sign up during a Special Enrollment Period.

and retiree health plans aren't considered coverage based on current employment. You may not be eligible
for a Special Enrollment Period when that coverage ends. This Special Enrollment Period also doesn't apply to people
with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). You may also qualify for a Special Enrollment Period for Part A and Part B if
you're a volunteer, serving in a foreign country. 
Some people get Part A & Part B automatically If you are already
getting benefits from Social Security or RRB (Railroad Retirement Board.
Under 65 years old with a disability, i
f you
are enrolled in Medicare automatically you'll get a red, white & blue Medicare card in the mail 3 months before your
birthday or the 25th month anniversary of your disability. A Medigap - Medicare Supplement Insurance policy is
different from a Medicare Advantage Plan. Advantage Plans (click here) are ways to get Medicare benefits, while a
Medigap - Medicare Supplement Insurance policy supplements your Original Medicare benefits. (click here).

Pre-existing health care condition covered under Medicare

1. Understand that under national laws Medigap -Medicare Supplement Insurance policies can refuse to cover prior
medical conditions for the first six months. That apply's if you did not enrol during the "Guaranteed Issue" period(s). 

2. The wait time for coverage to start is called a pre-existing condition waiting period. You can avoid waiting periods
if you buy your policy when you have a "Guaranteed Issue" right. If you buy your policy when you have "Guaranteed
Issue" rights, insurers can never refuse to cover prior medical conditions coverage for any period of time.

     a. Make sure you buy a Medigap - Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plan in advance of enrolling in
         Medicare so you do not have any gaps in coverage. If you already had Part B when you turned 65, your open
         enrollment period to buy a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policy begins the month of your 65th birthday.

     b. If you miss your open enrollment period, you can also buy a Medigap - Medicare Supplement and Medicare
         Advantage plan Insurance
when you have a  guaranteed issue right. If you are age 65 or older, you have a
         "Guaranteed Issue" right within 63 days of when you lose or end certain kinds of health coverage.
         This includes:

           • If you had group health insurance (through either current or previous employment) that paid after Medicare
              and lost it through no fault of your own, you have the right to buy most Medigap policies.

           • If you joined a Medicare Advantage plan when you first became eligible for Medicare and disenrolled within
              12 months, you have the right to buy any Medigap policy offered in your state by any insurance company.

           • If your previous Medigap policy, Medicare Advantage plan, PACE program ends its coverage or commits fraud,
              you have the right to buy most Medigap policies.

     c. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan, Medicare SELECT policy or PACE program and you move out of the plan's
         service area, you have the right to buy most Medigap policies.

When you have a "Guaranteed Issue" right, companies are required to sell you a policy at the best available rate,
regardless of your health status, an insurance company cannot deny you coverage. The best available rate may depend
on number of factors, including your age, gender, whether you smoke and where you live. Companies cannot make you
wait for coverage of pre-existing conditions if you have a guaranteed issue right.

Due to many Insurance Companies selling Medigap - Medicare Supplement Insurance and Advantage
policies we are unable to advise until we are aware of your needs and permission.
