Enrolling in Original Medicare

Navigating the enrollment process for Original Medicare can be straightforward, but it's crucial to grasp the timelines and requirements involved. In most cases, individuals are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B if they receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board benefits. However, if you're not automatically enrolled, rest assured that MediPlans NJ is here to assist you every step of the way.

During your Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) or Special Enrollment Period (SEP), I'll guide you through the Medicare signup process, ensuring that you understand all the necessary steps and deadlines. By working with MediPlans NJ, you can avoid penalties and prevent any gaps in your coverage.

Whether you're entering Medicare for the first time or making changes to your existing coverage, trust MediPlans NJ to provide expert assistance and support throughout the enrollment journey. Contact us today to get started and secure your Medicare coverage with confidence.

How do I enroll in Part A & B?

Enrolling in Medicare Part A and B can be done in a few ways, but it's important to consider your situation. Generally, you'll want to contact the Social Security Administration at least three months before turning 65 to avoid any penalties. They can help you determine your eligibility and guide you through the enrollment process. You can also enroll online or by mail, but understanding the enrollment periods is crucial to avoid delays or penalties.

What if I just need to enroll in Part B?

If you only need Part B, the process can be similar to enrolling in both A and B. You can still contact Social Security for guidance. There's also a specific window (January 1st to March 31st) to enroll without penalty if you're already receiving Part A and recently lost employer-provided health insurance.
