I am already retired from the County and am enrolled in the Retiree Health Benefits Program, but I am still working full-time in the private sector. Do I still need to enroll in Medicare when I turn 65?
Yes. Retiree insurance is not considered “creditable” coverage by Medicare. If you do not enroll in Part B at age 65 and but decide to enroll later, you will be subject to a late enrollment fee of 10% for each 12-month period beyond your original Part B eligibility date.
