Medicare Lesson #1

If you apply for Medicare and Social Security to commence simultaneously, the Medicare premium is deducted from the SS check. If you apply for Medicare without SS, you must find a way to pay for it.
In order to have the premium payment deducted from checking, or applied to your credit card, you must fill out a form. The form is not available on the website, it must be mailed to you. This will take 2 to 3 weeks. We asked for the form on the phone, I do not know if there is something on the website that allows you to request the form.
So, that's our first Medicare lesson.
