Anyone age 65 or over is eligible for Medicare. Most people age 65 and over are covered under Medicare Part A for free, based on their work records or on their spouse's work records. People over 65 who are not eligible for free Medicare Part A coverage can enroll in it and pay a monthly fee for the same coverage. However, this rate increases by 10% for each year after your 65th birthday that you wait to enroll.

This is true whether or not you are eligible for Part A hospital insurance.
