Should I sign up for Medicare Part B if I have Veterans’ Benefits?

Signing up for Medicare Part B may provide you with additional service and location options.

If you don’t sign up for Part B when you are first eligible:

  • You may have to wait to sign up, which will delay your coverage, and;
  • you may also have to pay a late enrollment penalty for as long as you have Medicare Part B.
