SignUp for Medicare: Enrollment Periods and Coverage
If you are new to Medicare, learn when you can enroll in Part A, B, C, and D and when your coverage will start. If you are eligible for Medicare, you must be enrolled in the hospital (Part A) and medical (Part B) parts of Medicare at the time of your retirement, so these requirements to enroll for Medicare coverage apply to you and your dependents. Deferred until termination of employment. You will remain covered by the plan you choose even after enrolling in Medicare. Premium rates will decrease if you or a dependent are eligible for Medicare and you are retired. Medical coverage does not change under IYC health plans. The IYC Medicare Advantage plan also offers a similar benefit. To apply, call or visit your local Social Security office or call Social Security at (800) 772-1213 between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. TTY users should call (800) 325-0778.
