If you want to add Part B to your Medicare, when can you do that?

If you want to add Part B to your Medicare, when can you do that?

You can sign up for Medicare Part B:

1. When you first register in Medicare (your Initial Enrollment Period). Your Initial Enrollment Period starts 3 months before you turn age 65 and lasts for 7 months.

2. January 1 - March 31 of every year (your General Enrollment Period). If you enroll in Part B during a General Enrollment Period, it will be effective from July 1 of the year in which you apply. Your Medicare Part B premium may go up by 10 percent for every 12 month period that you could have had Medicare Part B, but did not take it.

3. If you didn't take Medicare Part B when you were first qualified because you or your spouse were working and had group health plan coverage through your or your spouse's employer or union, you can enroll for Medicare Part B during a Special Enrollment Period.

You can sign up:

- Anytime you are still covered by the employer or union group health plan through your or your spouse's present or active employment, or

- During the 8 months subsequent to the month the employer or union group health plan coverage ends, or

- When the employment ends (whichever is first).
