When Can I Enroll?

Enrolling in Medicare when you first become eligible is the best decision so you can avoid late enrollment penalties. The enrollment period that marks the beginning of your eligibility is the Initial Enrollment Period, which surrounds your 65th birthday. This period starts three months before your 65th birthday, and ends three months after your birthday month.
