Medicare will start on the first day of your birth month unless you were born on the first day. In your case it will start on May 1. If you were born on May 1 it would start on April 1. It never sattrs on any other day of the month.You have a certain time period to sign up. If you are on social security your Medicare card will automatically be sent to you around 3 months prior to your birth month. If you are not on social security most likely you will have to sign up by contacting the social security office. You can sign up during a 7 month window which is 3 months prior to your birth month, your birth month, and 3 months after your birth month. If you sign up during or after your birth month Medicare will be effective the first day of the following month. For example, if you turn 65 on May 22 this year and you haven’t contacted social security or received your card you need to do this now and Medicare will be effective June first. If you wait until sometime in June to sign up it will be effective July 1. If you do not sign up by August 31 your next window will be January 1 through March 1 for a July 1 effective date, plus you will have a Part B penalty to pay monthly forever.
