You don’t need to sign up for Medicare each year. However, each year you will have a chance to review your coverage and make changes.
If you are currently on a Medicare Advantage Plan or Prescription Drug Plan, you can change your plan during the Annual Enrollment Period which begins October 15th and ends on December 7th. Also, if you are on an MAPD or PDP you may change your plan if you qualify for a special election period such as moving counties, losing or gaining Medicaid status, or if you live in an institution (i.e nursing home).
If you are on a Medicare Supplement Plan and want to make a change, you must qualify for a guaranteed issue reason or go through underwriting.
If you would like to know if you are eligible for a special election period or guaranteed issue reason, please contact us Toll Free at 877-255-6273 .
