Medicare Part B and Group Health Plan Coverage from an Employer or Union
Your Part B enrollment rights can be affected if you have coverage through an employer or union, and you or your spouse are still working, or if you have COBRA coverage (see Employer or Union Health Coverage). Your decision about when to sign up for Part B can also affect your rights to buy a Medigap Policy (Medicare Supplement Insurance) . For more information about enrolling in Part B, call Social Security (see Important Medicare Contacts ). You may also visit www.medicare.gov on the web and view the booklet "Enrolling in Medicare" or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) to ask questions. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
