If you are like many people, once you turned 64 you started receiving a lot of extra mail in your mailbox trying to sell you different Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage Plans. These mailers can be confusing and can certainly create information overload. They often list many different plans but fail to explain them. Few offer advice on what you should do as you approach age 65 and become Medicare eligible. So what should you do as you turn 65?
The first thing to know is you have to sign up for Original Medicare. Everyone who is turning 65 has a 7-month window during which they can sign up for Medicare. It begins three months before you turn 65 and lasts for three months after.
