Transcript:  Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) Infographic

 

Initial Enrollment Period (IEP)

 

The date your Medicare coverage begins depends on when you sign up. See the timeline below for a sample scenario.

 

Let's say your 65th birthday is June 20, 2018.

 

If you sign up for Part A (if you have to buy it) and/or Part B in this month

The month you turn 65 Your coverage starts 1 month after you sign up
1 month after you turn 65 Your coverage starts 2 months after you sign up
2 months after you turn 65 Your coverage starts 3 months after you sign up
3 months after you turn 65 Your coverage starts 3 months after you sign up

 

If you don’t sign up during this window, you have to wait until the General Enrollment Period. This runs from January 1 to March 31 each year. But your coverage won’t start until July 1.
