Initial Coverage Election Period

You can enroll when you first become eligible for Medicare (three months before the month you turn age 65 until three months after the month you turn age 65). If you get Medicare due to a disability, you can join from three months before to three months after your 25th month of cash disability payments.

Medicare beneficiaries may enroll only during specific times of the year. Visit our Medicare Enrollment Periods page to see the best time to enroll and other details about enrollment timelines.

What happens after I enroll?

We will mail you a letter confirming that we received your application. After that, we will send your application to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that runs the Medicare program, for approval.


When am I officially an EmblemHealth member?

You should get your EmblemHealth member ID card and Welcome Kit in the mail about seven business days after you receive our confirmation letter. An EmblemHealth Customer Service Representative will also call you to answer your questions and help you understand your benefits.


During one of these calls, you will be asked some questions about your health. This is because CMS asks all Medicare Advantage plans to do a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) for members. It will not affect your membership in EmblemHealth in any way. And your answers may help EmblemHealth to serve you better.
