  1. Great information! I know many small business owners that could use this info – as employees are working beyond 65 there are so many questions around SS and Medicare. Thanks!

    • Many people confuse Medicare and Medicaid. It’s Medicaid that you can get when you are under 65 because it is not age-related.

    • Once you turn 65 or have 24 months of SSDI benefits, you will be automatically enrolled in Medicare. Don’t worry though – Medicare can be primary and you can keep Medicaid as your secondary if are a qualified Medicare beneficiary with full Medicaid benefits.

  2. My Dad has Medicare and Medicaid and we just got information about a Part D drug plan that they enrolled him in. Is this normal?

    • Hi Novica, yes if someone is on Medicaid when they turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare, they must select a Part D drug plan. If he doesn’t select one on his own, then Medicare will automatically choose one for him. If he doesn’t like that drug plan though, he can contact 1-800-MEDICARE to investigate other drug plans and he is able to switch plans.
