    As you become Medicare eligible, you should receive your "hard copy" of the official "Medicare and You" annual publication from the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS). This is a very helpful publication. Additionally, your Medicare "red, white, and blue" identification card will be mailed to you once you've applied for your Medicare benefits. This eligibility card allows you to enroll in the various Medicare-related insurance plans and programs that you may be eligible for.
