It's time to sign up for Medicare

You need health care you can depend on — we’ll help you find it.

Thinking about Medicare, and wondering when to sign up? It depends on your situation:

Turning 65? For most people, it’s just a question of when you turn 65. Medicare gives you a “window” of time to sign up. It starts three months before your 65th birthday, and ends three months after you turn 65. It’s called your Medicare Initial Enrollment Period.

Working past 65? If you’re covered by your employer (or your spouse’s employer), talk to the plan. Find out if it works with Medicare. Some plans do, and you may be able to save on health care costs.

Disability? Some people qualify for Medicare before age 65 if they have certain disabilities (a physical or mental problem that limits your ability to take care of yourself).

Have more questions? We’re ready to help. We can put you in touch with several Medicare-approved resources. We believe that choosing the right Medicare plan puts you on the right path to better health.
