7. Will the Government charge more also?


I went without health insurance from 62 until I became eligible for Medicare at 65. Aged into it at the exact same time ACA went into effect. My husband's employer insurance for family would have been $1,250/month for the two of us, just short of our mortgage payment.

No health insurance company to charge a higher rate for lack of continuous coverage. So would Medicare charge a higher rate also? I do not have Medicare Advantage from an insurance company.

A person on another website asked this question. They were 64 years old and were thinking about not buying insurance at sky high rates for the year before they became Medicare eligible. No, it is not just healthy young people thinking about dropping health insurance.
