When the Medicare program was created in 1965, most people retired at age 65 and began to automatically participate in the program at that age. Meanwhile, when people started working after age 65 and Medicare tried to keep costs down, Medicare’s coverage and enrollment policy has changed.In the early 1980s, various laws were passed to make Medicare services dependent on benefits due under the Employer’s employer protection plan to workers and their spouses who are 65 years of age or older. In addition, employers are prohibited from offering Medicare eligible employees and their spouses a different health plan from other employees. Employers with fewer than 20 employees are exempt from these new laws, but may volunteer.These changes led to the creation of a new “special enrollment phase” for older workers. Adults over 65, who are covered by the EGHP because of their activities or spouse participation, are free to enroll in Medicare at age 65 without increasing the premium.


Because EGHP is the primary payer, most workers can not choose to pay for Medicare insurance, which can be doubled. Any rejection of registration during the “special enrollment period” may result in surcharges and the person can not register before the next general registration period.


Initially, the SEP began on the first day of the first month, when the team ceased to have EGHP coverage and ended seven months later. However, as of March 1, 1995, people with EGHP can register for Medicare while still in EGHP. In addition, the time within which enrollment may occur after the end of EGHP coverage has increased from 7 to 8 months.


Under the new guidelines, a person can sign Medicare while insured by an EGHP and decide to start insurance this month or for one of the next 3 months.
