Medicare Part D Plans, Senior Health Insurance, Family and Individual Health Insurance Coverage, Prescription Drug Plan.
IF I AM ABOUT TO TURN 65 YEARS OLD, HOW SOON CAN I APPLY FOR MEDICARE PART D PLANS?
Medicare Part D plans subsidize the cost of prescription drugs for Medicare beneficiaries. As an affordable senior health insurance option and prescription drug plan, you can apply for Part D Medicare within a seven month window surrounding the month of your 65th birthday. We can help you apply for this coverage, as well as other family health insurance and individual health insurance plans, in San Antonio, Laredo and Forth Worth, TX and Tampa, Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Your effective date for Medicare Part D plans is the first day of the month of you "aging in." You may apply for this coverage and prescription drug plan up to three months prior, the month of, and three months after your 65th birthday.
There are some situations in which you have "creditable coverage" where you do not need to apply. Also keep in mind that if you don't have existing creditable coverage (such as family health insurance or individual health insurance) there are penalties accessed if you don't apply for Medicare Part D coverage and prescription drug plans within the allotted time.
