The general enrollment period for Medicare goes from January 1st to March 31st. If you haven’t decided yet, your time is running out for the year.
It may not be immediately clear what this specific enrollment period is for, as several enrollment periods are related to Medicare. In this case, the enrollment window is for those who haven’t signed up for Medicare Part B but don’t have access to Part B’s special enrollment period.
You can also use this period to enroll in Medicare Part A if you have to pay a premium but did not sign up for Part A when you were first eligible.
Enrolling can be done online at Medicare.gov. From there, you can get started or make contact with someone who can answer questions and help further.
Medicare plays a critical role in your healthcare coverage in retirement. If you have questions after you have signed up, please reach out. We have a variety of resources that may provide you with insight.
