Medicare is a federal program that provides health-care benefits to people 65 and older, or who have a special condition or disability.
The first step, as you approach 65, is to decide when you’ll start using Medicare as your health insurance. The answer isn’t the same for everyone.
- Will you still be employed at age 65 and covered under an employer-sponsored health insurance plan?
- If so, how large is your employer? (Different rules apply, depending on whether the employer has at least 20 employees.)
- Will you be receiving Social Security benefits at 65 or do you plan to delay those benefits?
