Getting Ready for Medicare

If you’re about to turn 65, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Get the basics down.

Medicare coverage is made up of several "parts" that are designed to fit specific needs. Original Medicare (Parts A and B), Medicare Advantage
(Part C) and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D).

HAP helps you understand Medicare basics and the different "Parts" of Medicare with helpful articles, videos and other online resources.

Medicare Basics

Stay ahead of the game.

You can sign up for regular Medicare A & B anytime starting three months before your 65th birthday, the month during your 65th birthday ending three months after your 65th birthday through the Social Security Administration (You are leaving a Medicare-approved site).

Important Tip!

If you do not enroll in this period a 10% penalty may be imposed.
