    The prospect is 80 years old and her son told me she has had a green card for 5 years, during which she stayed out of the country for 1 year or so. She did not work or pay FICA tax in the US so they understand she will have to pay part A premium.

    1. Is she eligible for Medicare now? or she has to wait until she has lived here for 5 years after getting her green card?

    2. If she is able to get on Medicare, will she have to pay the late enrollment penalty for signing up at 80?

    TIA.

    The answer is, this person needs to move back to their birth country.
