MID is here to provide information and assistance on all areas of insurance, including Medicare. Three months before you reach age 65, you become eligible to apply for Medicare, whether or not you are still covered under an employer or union-sponsored health plan. If you aren’t already receiving Social Security or Railroad retirement, you have to apply for Medicare. To apply for Medicare, call your local Social Security Office.

You may also receive Medicare and health insurance counseling from:

Mississippi Insurance Department


Mississippi Department of Human Services
Division of Aging and Adult Services
