Medicare Part B comes with a whole different set of rules you must understand before activating it.

  1. You’ll pay a premium when you activate Medicare Part B so you’ll want to delay signing up for Part B if you have creditable coverage (through an employer or union).
  2. Be sure you understand the requirements for activating Medicare Part B at a later date.  If you decide to wait, you may have a late enrollment penalty so it’s prudent to seek the advise of an experienced Medicare Insurance Adviser like OCmedicare.
