“Medicare의자격, 등록 기간 및 위약금 규칙의 일반 규칙은 개인(U.S. citizen) 이 미국 또는 외국에 거주하는지 여부에 관계없이 적용됩니다.
The general rules of Medicare eligibility, enrollment periods and penalty rules apply regardless if a person (U.S. citizen) resides in the United States or a foreign land.
Medicare의 법적 거주 요건( 5년 ‘연속적’으로 거주) 는 영주권자 에게 해당하고 시민권자에게는 해당 되지 않습니다.
As a Green Card holder, timing also matters. Even if you have exceeded five years as a permanent resident, you cannot apply (purchase) for Medicare (Part B) unless you lived in the United States during the five ‘consecutive’ years immediately before you file an application.
The legal residency requirement for Medicare is layered. Not only must you establish permanent residency in the United States, but you must also have maintained that residency for at least five years.”
