How can I check my eligibility to enroll in Medicare?

A Humana care manager speaks with a client on the phone.

You qualify for Medicare when you turn 65, or if you’re disabled.

You can first enroll in Medicare three months before the month of your 65th birthday, and up to three months after your 65th birthday. (Note: If you don’t sign up during this initial enrollment period, you may face a penalty.)

If you get disability benefits from Social Security, you automatically qualify for Medicare Part A and Part B.

To verify your Medicare eligibility, visit www.medicare.gov.

You can also call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you use TTY, call 1-877-486-2048.

Before you call, have the following information ready:

  • Date of birth
  • Number of years you worked and paid Medicare taxes
  • U.S. state or territory of residence
  • Current group health benefits through an employer
  • Medicare Part A current enrollment status
  • Disability status

If you recently became eligible for Medicare, you may be able to enroll in a Humana Medicare plan right here on our website.
