Ok I've read the information on www.medicare.gov and I'm still confused after talking to friends and some other online reading.
I'm still working at a job that has 20 or more employees and have health insurance from that job.
I think I don't need to sign up for anything since I have insurance with my employer and from what I read on the medicare website.
Others say I need to sign up for A and one friend who's wife works in doctors office says I need to sign up for part C

Does anyone on this forum have any experience that can point me in the right direction?

I've tried calling Medicare and every time I've been on hold for like 10 - 15 minutes and no one ever picks up.

There is a grace period. I forget if it was 2 or 3 months. If you wait beyond that, there is a penalty on your premiums forever.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
