Q: What is equitable relief?

Monday, August 14, 2017

A: Equitable relief can be a lifeline for people who did not sign up for Part B on time. If the reason you did not enroll in Part B on time was a result of incorrect information you received from a representative of the federal government (for example, the Social Security Administration) and you have documentation to prove it, this is like winning the lottery. Your Part B coverage will begin immediately (or retroactively, if appropriate) and you will not have to pay a late enrollment penalty.
