Medicare Enrollment

If you did not enroll in Medicare when you were initially eligible because you have or had coverage through the Vanderbilt health plan, you will need to show that you had continuous coverage in order to avoid a lifetime premium penalty.

During your Special Enrollment Period, which is an eight-month period that begins the month after your group health plan coverage ends, you will need to enroll and submit Medicare form L564 Request for Employment Information, to show the Social Security office that you held continuous coverage.

The Benefits team at Vanderbilt can help you complete this form. Please email to request a completed form.
