When to Sign Up for a Medicare Supplement Plan

When sign up for Medicare Supplement?There are two basic options for when to sign up for your Medicare Supplement plan:

Option 1: If you are retiring at age 65 and enrolling in Medicare Part B, you should purchase your Medicare Supplement plan during the 6 months before your 65th birthday at the same time you enroll in Medicare Part B.

Option 2: If you continue to work beyond age 65, AND are covered by a group health benefits plan through your employer OR have private insurance, you must weigh your options. Compare the benefits and costs of keeping your group / individual coverage against changing to Medicare Part A and B with a Medicare Supplement Plan and a Part D prescription plan. Timing is important. With so many variables to weigh, don’t hesitate to contact Hardin Insurance for individual assistance when choosing your Medicare Supplement Plan.
