Updated: Aug 7, 2020

Medicare.gov has now introduced a new method of enrolling in Part B Medicare online, and it's fast and easy for you to apply at the comfort of your home.



COVID-19 Impact On Medicare 

To stop the spread of the coronavirus, many businesses had to either temporarily or permanently close. Because of this COVID-19, this all resulted in millions losing their jobs and losing their healthcare coverage. But on the bright side, many may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period to enroll in Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) 


Medicare has made it easy for seniors to apply for medicare part B through Docusign. This eliminates missing mails, faxes, and paperwork for your prospects. This is a game-changer! Due to COVID-19, thousands of seniors over the age of 65 lost their job and are forced to apply for Medicare Part B for their insurance coverage. You can walk them through how to fill the electronic form out or do it for them with their permission. This will help seniors tremendously, and it's a faster process.

If an individual already has Medicare Part A, which is Hospital Insurance, there's an online application that enables them to apply for Part B. First, go to this link: https://secure.ssa.gov/mpboa/medicare-part-b-online-application/ or go to https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/CMS-Forms/CMS-Forms/CMS-Forms-Items/CMS017339.
