People who are younger than age 65, or who do not have enough “work credits” in the USA, or otherwise do not qualify for Medicare may not enroll in Original Medicare or its supplemental plans.
Instead, they may sign up for health insurance through their employer, through their state-based or the federal Marketplace (Obamacare), or through private insurance companies. Other people may qualify for Medicaid, and children may qualify for their State Child Health Insurance Program.
- For employer-based plans, please contact your work supervisor
- For Obamacare plans sold through state-based or the federal Marketplace, click here.
- For private plans, contact an independent agent in your area
- For information on the State Child Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), click here and find your state
If you are unsure of whether or not you qualify for Medicare, or have other questions, please call My Medicare Partners at 1-844-305-6169.
Please note that there is a difference between Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is the health care program primarily for people aged 65 and older, or who qualify due to disability or illness. Medicaid is the health care program primarily for people who are considered indigent. Some people may qualify for both Medicaid and Medicare.
While the Federal Government does oversee the Medicaid program, each state administers its own Medicaid program. Each state’s eligibility requirements also differ, so it’s necessary to contact your state to see if you qualify.
To get more information about Medicaid or to apply, please contact your state’s Medicaid offices. You may do an internet search to find your state’s Medicaid contact information or click here to find your state’s Medicaid application and more.
If a child does not qualify for Medicaid, it is recommended to contact the State Child Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP) by clicking here.
Other Government Agencies and Nonprofit Organizations
While the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services oversee all Medicare information, other information and resources can be found on both governmental and nonprofit organizations’ websites.
Although nonprofits are, as their names suggest, not in business to make a profit, some organizations do align themselves with insurance sales agencies. To avoid your information being sold to lead aggregator and lead vendor companies, who will in turn sell your information to dozens of insurance agents, we strongly suggest you do not provide any of your personal or contact information. As always, if someone contacts you about Medicare, always be sure to confirm that they are calling from My Medicare Partners.
