The 5-Step Guide to Applying for Medicare Online

If you’re at least age 65 and have spent at least three continuous months in a medically necessary facility after being discharged from the military (or discharged due to a service-connected disability), you may be eligible for Medicare. Here’s everything you need to know about applying for Medicare online.

Understanding Medicare

If you are over the age of 65 and are planning to retire in the near future, it is important to understand Medicare. Medicare is a government-run health insurance program that provides coverage for people who are over the age of 65.

To qualify for Medicare, you must have been a citizen of the United States for at least five years prior to turning 65. You also must be able to prove that you have spent a certain amount of time living in the United States. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may be able to apply for Medicare after living in the country for a certain period of time.

Once you have been approved for Medicare, you will need to sign up for the program. There are several different ways to sign up, and each has its own set of fees. The most common way to sign up is through an online application process. This process is easy to follow, and there are no required medical tests or interviews.
