Medicare Annual Enrollment Period – Whiteboard Video:

What is the Medicare Open Enrollment Period… and what coverage changes can you make? If by Open Enrollment you mean the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period, from October 15th through December 7th each year, you can make changes to your current Medicare Advantage Program or Part D drug plan.   

However, if you’re already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, your Open Enrollment window is from January 1 to March 31. During this period, you can switch Medicare Advantage Plans, leave your plan to return to Original Medicare with or without drug coverage, or just change your Medicare Advantage Drug Plan.  

Finally, there is the Medicare Supplement or Medigap Open Enrollment Period that occurs once in a lifetime, unless you are collecting Social Security Disability Benefits. It begins on your Medicare Part B effective date, usually the first day of the month after you turn 65, and you don’t have to answer any health questions to qualify. Choosing a Medicare Supplement Plan during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period offers you the best chance to find a plan in your area that offers the coverage you need at the lowest cost. After six months, your window of opportunity closes, and you’ll have to answer health questions if you want to apply.   

Navigating all these different Open Enrollment Periods can be confusing. There are also special circumstances that can affect the SEP timelines – and your eligibility – that your advisor can make you aware of.
