Under certain special conditions, you may be able to sign up for Medicare outside of regular enrollment periods.
I’m over 65 (or disabled) and only have Part A. Now that I have ESRD, can I sign up for Part B?
- Yes. You can enroll in Part B without paying a late enrollment penalty if you apply for Medicare and are approved based on End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Contact Social Security to enroll.
I’m over 65 (or disabled). I’m paying a higher Part B premium because I didn’t enroll in Part B when I was first eligible. Now that I have ESRD, do I need to continue to pay the higher Part B premium?
- To stop paying the higher Part B premium and begin paying the base premium, you must enroll in Medicare based on End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Contact Social Security to enroll.
