When and How Do I Sign Up for Medicare?

It’s important to remember that enrolling in Part A and B is just the first step in the process. Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) may not provide enough coverage. You will want to consider adding a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) and prescription drug coverage (Part D) for complete coverage. There is a penalty for not adding Part D when you are first eligible.
