Pay Attention to Medicare Enrollment Periods
It’s very important to keep Medicare enrollment in mind as your 65th birthday approaches. Most people’s Initial Enrollment Period occurs during the 7-month stretch that starts 3 months before your birthday month, includes your birthday month, and continues 3 months after your birthday month.
If you miss this enrollment period, you could potentially be subject to higher premiums and late fees. That’s why it’s so essential to start thinking about Medicare early enough. If you aren’t eligible for a Special Enrollment Period (SEP), you may be able to enroll in Medicare during the General Enrollment Period that lasts from January 1st until March 31st each year.
