You probably already know that most people become eligible for Medicare upon reaching their 65th birthday. However, you might not be aware of the exact parameters around this first opportunity to enroll in Medicare. Turning 65 is technically the event that qualifies an individual to enroll. However, the the “Initial Enrollment Period” is actually 7-month long window. This window typically begins 3 months prior to your birthday month and ends 3 months after your birthday month. However, the exact dates can vary depending on your date of birth. Neglecting to enroll during your IEP can have costly consequences, especially if you don’t have creditable coverage in the interim. Luckily, Renew is here to help take the guesswork out of this calculation! Use our Initial Enrollment Period Finder to identify when you should sign up for Medicare.
