Medicare Advantage Plans - Why Apply
Once a retiree, spouse, or domestic partner reaches age 65, he/she may want to apply for Medicare Part A and B as soon as they become eligible because the healthcare provider becomes the secondary payer for them. He/she may also incur a penalty of 10% of premium per year for not signing up for Medicare, Part B when first eligible to do so.
Please submit a copy of your Medicare card to DCRB when you become Medicare eligible and receive your Medicare Card.
Members can submit their materials to DCRB Member Services in a variety of ways:
- Fax us at (202) 566-5001
- Send USPS mail to us at:
