How do I get Medicare Part A and Part B?

In all states: Many People Automatically Get Medicare Part A and Part B insurance; if you’re already collecting benefits form Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB); you will automatically get Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance). If you get Part B automatically and you don’t want to keep it, you must follow Medicare’s directions to let Medicare know you don’t want it. Otherwise, you’ll be charged the Part B premium.

Some People Need to Sign Up for Medicare Part A and Part B insurance; If you’re age 65 or older and you aren’t getting Social Security or RRB benefits yet (for instance, because you’re still working), you wont get Medicare Part A and Part B automatically: you need to sign up for them. If you worked for a railroad, contact the RRB to sign up. Everyone else should contact Social Security to sign up for Part A and Part B.

Note about Part A Premiums; most people don’t pay a monthly premium for Part A coverage because they (or their spouse) paid Medicare taxes while they were working. This is called “premium-free Part A.” People who aren’t eligible for premium-free Part A may be able to buy Part A for a monthly premium if they meet certain eligibility requirements. In most cases, if you want to buy Part A this way, you must also have Part B, which means you’ll have to pay the monthly Part B premium, too.

If you have Medicare A&B, you are eligible to buy a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage Plan.
