Question
Hello:

If I am still working at the age of 65, do I apply for medicare even though I have medical insurance from by employer?

I thank you for your reply.

Answer
Hello Kenneth,

You may want to consider filing for Medicare Part A Hospital Insurance.  This is premium free and can help with hospital bills after your employer insurance has paid.  On the application for Health Insurance, you can show "Refused" for Medicare Part B  Medical Insurance if you have employer group health coverage based on current employment.  The enrollment is then processed for Medicare Part A Hospital Insurance only.
