Medicare Open Enrollment is Soon to Close – Have You Applied?

Secure your health care before December 7th, 2016.

If you’ve yet to apply for health care coverage, be sure to make a move before December 7th, 2016. For those looking to sign up for Part A (hospital insurance) and/or Part B (medical insurance), you must first be eligible for Medicare, and then you’ll have a 7-month Initial Enrollment Period. For those born in 1951, you qualify for this coverage!

When you sign up for Medicare Part A and/or Medicare Part B during the first three months of your Initial Enrolment Period, your coverage start date will depend on your birthday. These plans start the first month that you turn 65.
