    Once enrolled, you can only opt out of Medicare Part A if you also disenroll from Social Security, a fact affirmed bu a government ruling in 2012 when five senior citizens, including HOuse Majority Leader Dick Armey, asked to be disqualified from the system. The final ruling indicated that, while it is possible for someone to simply decline to utilize their Part A coverage, they can not disenroll, as it could potential harm the integrity of the entire Medicare system.

    If you are paying a premium for Medicare Part B or D, you can opt out of those plans, at certain times of the year. However, if you do chose to do so, you could incur a penalty if you ever wanted to re-enroll for in these plans later.
