Medicare does not require anyone to register at age 65 or any other time. However, your health insurance company might require you to register in order for Medicare to be your primary insurance.

Why can't i stay on my employers health insurance when i turn 65?

It depends where you live. Some employers do not provide insurance. In some countries if you are working after you are 65 or your spouse is working, you will be entitled for health insurance from employer. You will be eligible for Medicare even if you continue to work after you turn 65. It is important that you decide whether or not to enroll for medicare. You may not need all of Medicare benefits if you are still covered under your employer's plan. You can delay certain parts of Medicare, and get them later on when you retire, or if you lose your employer's insurance. You should make these decisions at least 3 months before your 65th birthday.

What is a medicare supplement and a medicare replacement?

Medicare supplement pays part or all of your deductibles and copays that you have with Medicare parts A and B. A "Medicare replacement" is actually Medicare advantage. They are a Medicare option that combines your Part A, B and sometimes part D into one plan that is administered by a Medicare contracted insurance company. Many of these plans have very low or even 0 monthly premiums. You still have copays but they are generally much less than Original Medicare. (If this question relates to United States Medicare, there is no such thing as the concept of "Medicare replacement." I do not see anywhere to add an alternative answer so I put this here just as a warning. In the United States you are either on Medicare or you are not. If you are on Medicare in the United States, you will almost certainly feel the need to supplement it. Over 95% of the people on United States Medicare supplement it in some way. There is a wide choice of ways to supplement United States Medicare. The answer above describes only two of them.
