I’ve Retired but I Can’t Enroll in Medicare Until I Begin Collecting Social Security

False!  Many people want to put off collecting social security so they can receive the highest benefit.  This does not keep one from enrolling in Medicare.  At 65, Medicare is available to enroll in.  If you or a spouse is still working, you may decide to continue to take advantage of an employer health plan but the option is still there.

You may know someone that has their Medicare Part B premium deducted from their Social Security check.  Consequently, you might assume that you can’t get Medicare Part B until you have a social security check to deduct from.  This is not true.  You can enroll in Medicare Part B and have your premiums deducted from your bank account automatically.

Medicare is confusing.  Senior Insurance Options is here to help and answer your questions.
