If you have a marketplace plan and you are turning 65 soon or maybe you already turned 65… get your medicare all set up. If you delay your medicare enrollment you might have a huge gap in coverage in the future.00:0007:19
THE RISKS YOU RUN
Your carrier may find out that you’re eligible for Medicare and they may not pay claims.
If you try to apply for another marketplace plan you will no longer be eligible.
You will have to apply for Medicare during the General Enrollment Period (GEP) which is every year from January 1 – March 31.
Your Medicare wont be until July 1 and you will have a gap in coverage from January 1 – June 30.
Some carriers who offer GAP coverage will no longer offer you coverage because you are now 65 years of age.
