Medicare Advantage Plan open enrollment period
Did you know that if you’re unhappy with your Medicare Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C), you have options?
Each year, there’s a Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period from January 1st to March 31st.
During this time, if you’re in a Medicare Advantage Plan and want to change your health plan, you can do one of these:
- Switch to a different Medicare Advantage Plan with or without drug coverage
- Go back to Original Medicare and, if needed, also join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan
If you switch Medicare Advantage Plans or go back to Original Medicare with or without a Medicare drug plan, your new coverage will start the first day of the month after your new plan gets your request for coverage.
Keep in mind, if you go back to Original Medicare now, you may not be able to buy a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy.
If you apply for Medigap coverage after your open enrollment period, there’s no guarantee that an insurance company will sell you a Medigap policy if you don’t meet the medical underwriting requirements.
The Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period isn’t for people who already have Original Medicare.
It’s important to understand and be confident in your Medicare coverage choices.
If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan and want to change your plan, check out your options today.
Remember, this Medicare Advantage Plan Open Enrollment Period ends March 31st.
If you are unhappy with your Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C), this is the time to call an agent and find what option will work best for you.
