Who doesn’t need to apply?
Those who are of eligible age and receiving Social Security benefits will most likely be automatically enrolled in Original Medicare. If you’re not automatically enrolled or would like to apply for additional Medicare Parts, then there are a few steps that you should take.
Applying by yourself
If you’re absolutely certain about the coverage that you want to receive, you can apply yourself. This can be done online or over the phone. To apply online, you must meet the age requirement necessary to make you eligible for Medicare. You can also apply at a Social Security office, as a lot of Medicare is influenced by Social Security.
