Even if you have health coverage available to you after age 65 other than Medicare, it is important to review all your options outside of Medicare and all your options within Medicare. You should not assume one option is automatically your best choice. Many individuals who have health coverage options outside of Medicare at age 65 may find it more beneficial to enroll in Medicare. Also, even if you determine it is in your best interest to defer enrolling in Medicare until a later date, you still need to consider many important Medicare rules to avoid costly mistakes.
