Am I Eligible For Medicare Part A and Part B?

In most cases, Medicare eligibility is straightforward. But there are some situations where a client may not have the required 40 Social Security work credits to be eligible for Medicare. While this is an uncommon situation, it is far from rare. There are many follow-up questions that should be asked of the client to determine if they are eligible for Medicare.

To help make this easier, we have created the “Am I Eligible For Medicare Part A and Part B” flowchart. It addresses some of the most common Medicare eligibility issues that arise:
