Q) Can you please let me know if i can drop my application for Medicare part B form at the office in Brick Can you also let me know what is the last day to apply for part B I have tried everything to get this done and nothing is working . I don’t know what is going on with your fax machine . I have been trying all day yesterday and about 5 times today already. It is just not going through. I called this morning and was told to try again to fax but not going through. I have been trying to call again but the line are just busy.
A) In general, you can drop off your Medicare Part B application at a local Social Security Administration (SSA) office. You can use the SSA’s office locator tool on their website to find the nearest office to you. Keep in mind that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many SSA offices have reduced hours or are operating on an appointment-only basis, so it’s a good idea to call ahead to confirm their hours and any other procedures you need to follow.
The general enrollment period for Medicare Part B runs from January 1 to March 31 each year. If you enroll during this period, your coverage will start on July 1 of the same year. However, if you miss the general enrollment period and don’t have a qualifying event (such as losing employer-sponsored coverage), you may be subject to a late enrollment penalty.
If you are having trouble faxing your application or getting through to the SSA, you may want to consider alternative methods of submitting your application, such as mailing it or dropping it off in person at an SSA office. Additionally, you can contact a Medicare counselor or representative for assistance with your application. The Medicare website has a tool that can help you find a counselor in your area.
I hope this information helps, but please note that specific rules and procedures for Medicare Part B enrollment may vary based on your individual circumstances, so it’s a good idea to confirm any information with the SSA or a qualified Medicare representative.
