Medicare Eligibility:

From Website
Generally, you are eligible for Medicare if you or your spouse worked for at least 10 years in Medicare-covered employment and you are 65 years or older and a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. If you arenít yet 65, you might also qualify for coverage if you have a disability or with End-Stage Renal disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or transplant).

Here are some simple guidelines. You can get Part A at age 65 without having to pay premiums if:

- You already get retirement benefits from Social Security or the Railroad Retirement Board.

- You are eligible to get Social Security or Railroad benefits but haven't yet filed for them.

- You or your spouse had Medicare-covered government employment.

If you are under 65, you can get Part A without having to pay premiums if you have:

- Received Social Security or Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits for 24 months.

- End-Stage Renal Disease and meet certain requirements.
