Test Your Knowledge - How well do you know Medicare?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for those aged 65 or older and for younger people with disabilities. The typical enrollment window begins three months before you turn 65 and ends three months after your 65th birthday. Many individuals are eager to enroll in Medicare as soon as they are eligible. But if you are currently covered by group insurance through an employer or a spouse's employer, you may qualify for a special enrollment period that allows you to delay Medicare enrollment without paying a penalty.

Which of the following is true about delayed enrollment in Medicare for those who are 65 and covered by group insurance through an employer or a spouse's employer?

  1. The size of the employer determines whether you can delay enrolling in Part A and Part B without having to pay a penalty.
  2. You have an eight-month enrollment period that begins the month after your employment or insurance coverage ends, whichever comes first.
  3. COBRA coverage, which continues your health insurance through the employer's plan after your employment or coverage ends, is not considered a coinsurance based on employment and does not qualify for penalty-free delayed enrollment.
  4. All of the above.
