Good afternoon,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
When you turn 65 you will be eligible for Medicare. However, you do have to apply for Medicare to get it.
You may apply in the 6 month period surrounding your 65th birthday---three months before and three months after, So, do plan on applying for Medicare at your earliest convenience, which should be in July of this year.
Here is a link to the online application that you can fill out in July:
http://www.ssa.gov/medicare/apply.html
You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.
Kindly, remember to rate my service to you. That is how I am credited for assisting you.
I wish you and yours the best in 2015,
Doug
