You might be eligible for Medicare before 65 if you are disabled.

Otherwise - you will be eligible when you turn 65.

Social Security Expert: lev-tax, Tax Advisor replied 1 year ago

When you apply for Medicare, you can sign up for Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance). Because you must pay a premium for Part B coverage, you can turn it down. However, if you decide to enroll in Part B later on, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty for as long as you have Part B coverage.

If you’re eligible at age 65, your initial enrollment period begins three months before your 65th birthday, includes the month you turn age 65, and ends three months after that birthday.

Let me know if you need any help.
