Is there anyone I can talk to about my specific Medicare eligibility needs?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine

Yes. You can make an appointment with a Social Security representative at your local office by calling 1-800-772-1213. You can also call Medicare directly at 1-800-633-4227.

 

Finally, your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) provides free counseling and education to help you choose coverage. You can go online to www.shiptalk.org to find a counselor in your area.
