More and more people are choosing to work after they reach the age of 65. A lot of folks are not sure whether to enroll onto Medicare or not.

A person can enroll onto Medicare Part A when they turn 65 as it has no premiums.

If you work for a company that has 20 or more employees, the group plan will be primary and the employee does not need to enroll onto part B unless he/she chooses to do it. You can elect to enroll in Part B (medical) coverage and pay a monthly premium. The monthly premium starts at about $134 per month and can be higher based on your Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI).

Medicare Parts A & B cover about 80% of the expenses, you should consider enrolling onto a Medicare Advantage plan or obtain Supplement plan and a drug plan to help you with the remaining 20% exposure.

We recommend that you seek the help of an independent insurance specialist to ensure that you are considering different options, as there many factors that could affect your selection.
