Enrollment for Medicare Part B is based on numerous factors.
You have the option to delay enrollment in Medicare Part B. One instance would be if you did not take Medicare Part B at the point of eligibility, for instance, because you or your spouse were still working and covered under an employee sponsored group health plan.
The Medicare enrollment period generally runs annually from January 1 – March 31. Coverage begins on July 1 of the year of enrollment. Remember you may have to pay a premium surcharge for late enrollment unless you are covered by a group health plan like the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan (FEHB) based on current enrollment when you are first able to receive Medicare.
If you are disabled, your coverage can be as a result of your own or a family member’s current employment.
