RE: How should I apply for Medicare in the USA while living in Costa Rica?

I am currently receiving Social Security Retirement Benefits.  When I turn 65 I plan to apply for Medicare Part A benefits.  I’ve heard 3 possible methods: 1) apply online; 2) apply at the US Embassy; 3) wait for the Medicare package to be mailed to my USA mailing address.  Which is correct?  Are they all acceptable methods?

One thing to remember, don’t wait until you turn 65. I believe the procedure is to apply three months before you turn 65.
