Sign up for Medicare in North Carolina
Register for Medicare
Are you eligible to start receiving Medicare benefits, and want to register quickly and easily online? The Social Security Administration makes it simple – you don’t even have to visit one of their offices or set an appointment.
If you want to register for Medicare only (without Social Security benefits) you can begin the process by clicking over to their online Medicare registration page here: www.ssa.gov/medicareonly
What Happens When You Register For Medicare Online?
Once you’re on the Social Security Administration page, you’ll be asked to complete a short form (it usually takes less than 15 minutes). In most cases, that’s all that is needed to register for Medicare coverage online, and you can expect to receive your card in the mail in just a few weeks.
On the same page you’ll also find information designed to help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of registering for Medicare only.
You’ll also find a quick description of the program requirements, which are essentially:
- That you be at least 64 years and 9 months old
- That you don’t currently have Medicare coverage
- And that you aren’t ready to start receiving Social Security benefits yet
If that sounds like what you’re looking for, take advantage of the fast, convenient online Medicare registration link today. And as always, be sure to check back to our site often for the latest news and updates on Medicare information for seniors.
