Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Medicare Part A is free and you do not need to apply. But the longer you wait the longer you will be penalized after you apply.
Every insurance policy is different with different set of rules. You will have to check with your employer how your Medicare eligibility will affect you benefits. You do not have to apply for Medicare if you do not want to but your employer may cancel the policy if you become eligible and you do not apply.
