    It is possible to get Medicare before age 65 in some circumstances. Unfortunately, opting to take Social Security benefits before age 65 does NOT entitle you to Medicare benefits. Likewise, if your spouse is under age 65 when you retire, they are not eligible for Medicare until they turn age 65. An alternate form of medical insurance must be secured for the interim, in those situations.

    Medicare can be obtained before age 65 if the patient has End Stage Renal Disease or ALS, within parameters. Persons who are on Social Security Disability for two years can also receive Medicare under age 65.
