How Do I Apply or Enroll in Medicare Part A or Part B?


Applying for Medicare Part A and Part B is your most important step! You can apply by visiting your local Social Security office. You can call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778) or you can enroll online with Social Security.  

Some people are automatically enrolled in Medicare and others will need to enroll. You are automatically enrolled if:

  1. You are already receiving your Social Security or Railroad retirement
  2. Under 65 and have a disability (including individuals with ALS)

If you did not sign up for Medicare Part A and B when you were first eligible, you only have two enrollment periods that you can use to enroll: (1) General Enrollment Period and (2) Special Enrollment Period.

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.
