Frequently Asked Questions:
- I am going to be 65 soon, what should I do about Social Security & Medicare?
Three months before your birthday, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 and apply for Social Security. You will then receive your red, white & blue Medicare card.
- When I turn 65, do I need different Medicare Coverage?
If you are not covered by an employer or union, you will need a supplemental insurance to cover what Medicare does not cover.
- Am I covered for prescriptions under Medicare?
Yes, you will need Medicare Part D unless you apply for an “Advantage” plan (which takes the place of the original Medicare plan and covers your supplemental insurance & prescriptions).
- Will I still be able to use my red, white & blue Medicare card if I have an “Advantage” plan?
No, you will be given a special card from your new insurance company.
