When to apply for Medicare varies for each person. What’s worse is that even those these rules exist, there are often workers at Social Security who will get them wrong. This can really affect you, so contact a Medicare insurance broker like Boomer Benefits for help. We have solved Medicare enrollment issues for our clients with plain facts in many conference calls with Social Security.

[...] Medicare is already very complex, some say too complex. There is research that suggests beneficiaries have difficulty making good choices among the myriad of available plans. [...]
As discussed in more detail in the following paragraphs, we propose the following general rules to govern adding, updating, and removing measures:
82 FR 56336 (a) Basis. This subpart is based on sections 1851(d), 1852(e), 1853(o) and 1854(b)(3)(iii), (v), and (vi) of the Act and the general authority under section 1856(b) of the Act requiring the establishment of standards consistent with and to carry out Part C.
Under a new proposed SEP, individuals who have a change in their Medicaid or LIS-eligible status would have an election opportunity that is separate from, and in addition to, the two scenarios discussed previously. (As discussed in section III.A.2. of this rule, and unlike the other two conditions discussed previously, individuals identified as “at risk” would be able to use this SEP.) This would apply to individuals who gain, lose, or change Medicaid or LIS eligibility. We believe that in these instances, it would be appropriate to give these beneficiaries an opportunity to re-evaluate their Part D coverage in light of their changing circumstances. Beneficiaries eligible for this SEP would need to use it within 2 months of the change or of being notified of the change, whichever is later.

As part of the Part C and D Star Ratings System, Star Ratings are currently calculated at the measure level. To separate a distribution of scores into distinct groups or star categories, a set of values must be identified to separate one group from another group. The set of values that break the distribution of the scores into non-overlapping groups is a set of cut points. We propose to continue to determine cut points by applying either clustering or a relative distribution and significance testing methodology; we propose to codify this policy in paragraphs (a)(1) of each section. We propose in paragraphs (a)(2) and (a)(3) of each section that for non-CAHPS measures, we would use a clustering methodology and that for CAHPS measures, we would use relative distribution and significance testing. Measure scores would be converted to a 5-star scale ranging from 1 to 5, with whole star increments for the cut points. A rating of 5 stars would indicate the highest Star Rating possible, while a rating of 1 star would be the lowest rating on the scale. Consistent with current policy, we propose to use the two methodologies described as follows to convert measure scores to measure-level Star Ratings.
