Re: Turning 65 but don't want Medicare

If you are taking a social security check they will automatically put you on Medicare part B.  I would go into the social security office and make sure you deny or tell them you don't want it.  I would also send in the form that they send you saying you deny the coverage.  It is very important to deny the coverage if you don't want Medicare part B when you turn 65 years old.

Go to the social security office and tell them you don't want it.  If you get a card in the mail, follow the instructions and send it back.

Re: Turning 65 but don't want Medicare

Always consult with an agent when you are about to turn 65 whether you want to go on Medicare or not.  Medicare is a large system and if you mess up your initial enrollment period it can be detrimental to the rest of your Medicare supplemental existence.  Many people want to take care of Medicare on their own but a Medicare supplement agent can give you the right advice.
