Hi, I can help here!


Here's the way this works (as you can it all depends on what month you sign up ... as it relates to when you TURN 65)


If you sign up in this month:.............Your coverage starts:

The month you turn 65.....................1 month after you sign up

1 month after you turn 65.................2 months after you sign up

2 months after you turn 65................3 months after you sign up

3 months after you turn 65................3 months after you sign up

During the 1/1 - 3/1 Enrollment .........July 1
