Turning 65.What Do I Need To Do?
If you’re 65 years old, you might be anticipating a variety of things, like having grandkids, retiring from your job, or going on a trip you’ve always wanted to. It’s possible that the year you turn 65 may mark the beginning of your eligibility for Medicare, making it a landmark year for you as well. Anyone who has turned 65 and is qualified for Social Security benefits is entitled to free Medicare Part A.
Medicare is the name of the federal government-run health insurance program that offers hospital (Part A) and (Part B) medical insurance to those who are 65 years of age and older, as well as those individuals under 65 who qualify due to a handicap. The Original Medicare program consists of Medicare Parts A and B.
