Can You Apply for Medicare B Online?

The Medicare Part B online application is available for interested parties as long as they meet the minimum requirements for application. The application is quick, easy and convenient, according to the official website for the Social Security Administration.

People who can apply online for Medicare part B should be between nine months and 64 years of age; do not benefit from disability, Social Security retirement or survivors programs; do not have interest in receiving Social Security benefits immediately; and should not currently hold any Medicare coverage. For applicants who wish to apply for Medicare Part B only, a separate form, CMS 40-B, is available at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, notes the Social Security Administration.
