Q) I recently submitted my verification form for Medicare Part B. When can I expect a response? I want to sign up for a BCBS MedAdvantage plan.
A) According to Medicaid – Your coverage start date depends on your birthday if both of these apply:
You sign up for Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and/or Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance).
You sign up during the first 3 months of your Initial Enrollment Period.
Your coverage starts the first day of the month you turn 65, unless your birthday is on the first day of the month.
You can sign up for free Part A (if you’re eligible) any time during or after your Initial Enrollment Period starts. If you sign up within 6 months of your 65th birthday, your coverage will start at one of these times:
The first day of the month you turn 65
The month before you turn 65 (if your birthday is the first of the month)
After that, you’re coverage start date will go back (retroactively) 6 months from when you sign up.
Mr. Green’s 65th birthday is July 20, 2017. If he signs up for Medicare in April, May, or June, his coverage will start on July 1, 2017.

Mr. Kim’s 65th birthday is July 1, 2017. If he signs up for Medicare in March, April, or May, his coverage will start on June 1, 2017.

The month you turn 65 1 month after you sign up
1 month after you turn 65 2 months after you sign up
