I’m turning 65, when do I need to enroll for Medicare?

You can sign up for Medicare beginning three months before you turn 65, and coverage can start as soon as the first day of your birthday month. The initial enrollment period lasts until three months after your 65th birthday.

What are my options to cover the 20% gap that original Medicare leaves me?

The two most common options are either a Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement insurance plan. Medicare Supplement plans are PPO’s (preferred provider organizations) with a monthly premium, and Medicare Advantage plans are primarily HMO’s (health maintenance organization), sometimes a PPO, at little to no monthly cost. An AGA Medicare Options agent can explain the differences in these plans to you at no cost or obligation.
