How does one enroll in Medicare

Part A – Hospital, usually for no premium and

Part B Doctors for around $134/month?

I won’t go into a lot of detail here as CA Health Line 10.27.2016 and Medicare has done an excellent job of explaining how to enroll in their Guide Medicare & You, Publication 11036 Enrolling in Parts A & B,  Videos on the right  and their

ONLINE enrollment website.

The best time to sign up is 3 months before your 65th birthday and coverage will start on the 1st of the month of your birthday.

Once you enroll in Parts A & B, you are then eligible to get a Medi Gap Plan and part D Rx or Medicare Advantage (HMO) to fill in the gaps that Medicare doesn’t pay.  Please note that prescription drug coverage is mandatory with a penalty when you eventually sign up, if you didn’t  sign up when you are supposed to.

Please call 310.519.1335 or email us ([email protected])
for more information and enrollment into a Medicare Advantage, Prescription or Supplemental Plan.

  1. Medicare was enacted in 1965. I first had it deducted from paychecks starting in 1966. I retired in 2016 so Medicare was deducted from all my earnings for 50 years.

    I finally had occasion to use my Medicare benefit getting a doctor ordered blood test in order to continue receiving medication for high blood pressure. Medicare paid a whopping $2.94. My share was only $241.84.

  2. I can’t check the SS website because it won’t let me setup an account due to the fact that when I first tried to set up an account on March 8th I didn’t answer some of the identity verification questions correctly so it locked me out indefinitely. Great, huh!

    I was able to apply at Medicare however that day and got a confirmation email.

    I tried today to call SS to reset the site so I can setup an account, and see if I’m enrolled, but the wait time was 1-1/2 hours. Great, huh!

    Any suggestions????
