Hi Cheryl, OK just a couple of more questions.

How old are you?
What insurance, if any, did you have up until now?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I turned 65 in October, Have GEHA... High Option. applied for & got Medicare part A. I was in the middle of eye surgery at the time; couldn't wait for part B & paid out-of-pocket for surgery...applied for part B the end of October.

Thank you Cheryl,

OK, they are likely trying to ensure that you HAD coverage when you applied for Medicare. This is because if you applied in Oct., the month OF your birthday, you do not get coverage until November. That means Oct., when you were eligible for coverage, you did not have it. For those without coverage elsewhere, that could lead to a penalty in the pricing of their medicare premium. However, if you had group insurance, that is an exception to the penalty rule.

I hope this helps clarify for you.
