Medicare Coverage in Montana

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

If you’re enrolling in Original Medicare, the application process works the same in all states. To qualify for Medicare, you must be either a United States citizen or a legal permanent resident of at least five continuous years. Montana residents are automatically enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and Part B at age 65 if they already receive benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA) or the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB). You can also be enrolled automatically before age 65 if you receive disability benefits from Social Security or certain disability benefits from the RRB for 24 consecutive months. People with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are automatically enrolled in Medicare in the first month of receiving disability benefits.

The Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) administers healthcare services to help improve and protect the health and safety of some low-income Montanans. DPHHS reimburses private and public providers for a wide range of preventive, primary, and acute care services. Major service providers include: physicians, public health departments, clinics, hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, durable medical equipment, and mental health providers.
