All individuals who are eligible for premium-free Part A are eligible to enroll in Part B. Since Part B is a voluntary program that requires the payment of a monthly premium, those individuals who do not want coverage may refuse enrollment. An individual age 65 years or over who is not eligible for premium-free Part A must be a U.S. resident and either a citizen or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence who has resided in the U.S. continuously for the five-year period immediately preceding the month the
Part B enrollment application is filed. Individuals who refused Part B and those whose Part B coverage terminated may enroll or re-enroll in Part B only during prescribed enrollment periods
