Medicare, Medicaid, Life and Health Insurance/medicare card


If I never recieved a medicare card,what do I do?

Hi Elizabeth

Have you applied for your Medicare benefits? You have a 7 month window to apply for Medicare.  You can apply up to 3 months before your 65th birthday and up to 4 months after. If you've missed this window, you can apply as a late enrollment and pay a higher premium or wait until open enrollment which is January 1 thru March 31. If you have applied but have not received your card, call 1-800-Medicare. You can find out the status of your application. Check to make sure they have the correct address on file.
