Whether you are turning 65 or new to Medicare, it is important to know who can enroll and when to enroll in Medicare.

Medicare Initial Enrollment Period (IEP)

You can first sign up for Part A and/or Part B during the

7-month period

that starts 3 months before you turn 65 and ends 3 months after.


We can help you avoid late enrollment penalties.

Special Enrollment Period (SEP)

If you still have coverage through your employer or your spouse's plan, you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to enroll in Medicare at any time, penalty-free.

Parts A + B

Most people are entitled to Part A at no cost if you or your spouse have worked 40 quarters (at least 10 years).

Part B has a base premium of $174.70 per month. The cost could be higher based on your household income from two years prior.

Part D has a higher premium if your income is above a certain amount. This is called IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount).

See the chart below to determine your Part B costs and potential Part D costs. (Medicare Advantage and Medigap costs are not included.)
