Are you Automatically Enrolled in Medicare if you are on Social Security

Are you Automatically Enrolled in Medicare if you are on Social Security?

If someone takes Social Security early, will they be automatically enrolled in Part A and Part B of Medicare later on?

If you are enrolled in Social Security, when you turn 65 the federal government enrolls you in Part A and Part B of Medicare. They will also send your Medicare card.  You do not have to proactively enroll in Medicare A and B if you’ve already enrolled in Social Security.

The only person who has to enroll in A and B of Medicare is someone who is putting off Social Security enrollment until a later date. In that case, enrollment in Medicare should occur about 90 days prior to their 65th birthday.
