Eligibility: You're eligible to sign up for Medicare 3 months before and after your 65th birthday month—also known as your Initial Enrollment Period.

Unless you plan on delaying enrollment because of employer coverage or are disabled, you should enroll in a plan during your Initial Enrollment Period in order to avoid a late enrollment penalty.

Eligibility: You can delay Part D enrollment if you're still covered by your employer or spouse's health insurance benefits—even after you turn 65. Once your coverage ends, you will need to enroll in Medicare or you may face a penalty.

Your eligibility runs for 2 months after the month your previous coverage ends. Learn more at ›
