Enrolling through a spouse under 65
Enrolling Through a Spouse Under 65
If you're currently ineligible for Medicare Part A without cost in your own right, you may be or become eligible through a current, former, or deceased spouse's work history. If you're eligible through a spouse, you may apply when your spouse is first eligible to receive Social Security benefits, generally at age 62. Contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 325-0778 or TTY (800) 325-0778 to clarify your Medicare eligibility through a spouse.
