<<If you have ever been bothered because no one remembered your birthday, fear not.>>

Heh, heh!

Thanks for all the good comments!

<<You need to sign up for Medicare 3 months early. Your birthday is in December, so your effective date (if you sign up early enough) will be December 1. >>

This appears to answer the question I was interested in most immediately.

So Medicare for me would begin December 1st, since my 65th birthday is in December ----if I sign up in time, which I will.

Does that mean I should cancel my for profit (as intercst would say) individual health insurance plan as of the end of November?
