Hi,...Yes, you can. Although Part B can have late enrollment penalties for not enrolling at 65 (unless you can show that you were covered under a health insurance plan through your job or your spouse's job) ... Part D caries with it NO late enrollment penalties....here's a good overview on this: http://www.aarp.org/work/social-security/info-08-2011/social-security-medicare-benefits-age.html...and here's the information from Medicare.gov: https://www.medicare.gov/sign-up-change-plans/when-can-i-join-a-health-or-drug-plan/when-can-i-join-a-health-or-drug-plan.html
