Why apply for Medicare?

Did you know that people aged 65 and older account for about 36 percent of all health care spending in the US?* This perhaps isn’t too surprising. After all, the older you get, the more likely you are to need medical services.

If you’re 65 years old (or getting close), or if you’re younger than 65 and have a Medicare-covered disability, Medicare health insurance can help pay for your growing medical expenses—especially if you live on a fixed income. Apply for Medicare benefits today and gain access to the coverage you need.

How to apply for Medicare

Applying for Medicare is quick and easy! You can sign up for Medicare in about 10 minutes by calling Aetna at 1-866-461-5612.

Not sure if you’re ready to start receiving your monthly Social Security benefits? No problem. You can enroll just in Medicare and wait to apply for your retirement benefits (or your spousal benefits) later.

Apply for Medicare in 3 simple steps:

  1. Call 1-866-461-5612 to speak with a licensed Aetna Medicare agent
  2. Answer some questions about your health care needs
  3. Fill out the Medicare application form with help from your agent

You can also apply:

  • Online—visit the Social Security Administration’s official website
  • By phone—call the Social Security Administration directly at 1-800-772-1213 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday (or if you’re deaf or hard of hearing, you can call via TTY text telephone device at 1-800-325-0778)
  • In person—stop by your local Social Security office

What to know before you fill out your Medicare application

When you apply for Medicare, you have the option to enroll in Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), Medicare Part B (medical insurance), or both (also called “Original Medicare”). Since Part B coverage comes with a monthly premium, you can choose to decline it.

Keep in mind that if you decide to sign up after your Initial Enrollment Period, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty fee.

If you’re looking for more than just the standard Original Medicare coverage, Aetna offers a variety of Medicare plans to suit your needs, including Medicare Part C, Medicare Supplement, and prescription drug plans. Talk to a licensed Aetna agent today to find affordable Medicare plans in your area.
