Not sure what plan is right for you? Take Our Medicare Quiz

I am over 65 and I am new to Medicare, what do I do?

Congratulations! Good for you, it is time to kick back and enjoy! If you are over 65 then you will already have Medicare Part A (since you turned 65). However, you may have to apply for part B if you delayed these benefits, as you were still working. Your options are:

  • If you delayed your part B benefits, you will need to contact the Social Security office and apply. You will need to submit a letter of credible coverage indicating why you enrolled late. This will help you to avoid any late penalty.
  • If you didn’t delay your part B benefits, you will still need a letter of credible coverage from the current employer or insurance carrier in order to apply for insurance plans: Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, Prescription Drug Plans.  
  • Enroll into a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan to help cover the gaps in Original Medicare (add on a Part D).
  • Enroll into a Medicare Advantage Plan

Meet Melissa MacCalla

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.
