Some people say “Medicare Open Enrollment” to describe the new Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period. Whether you call it Medicare Open Enrollment or not, this new open enrollment period gives you another chance to make some changes to your Medicare coverage.
The new Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period is somewhat limited in terms of what you can do. It’s not for everything you might expect from a Medicare open enrollment period. This enrollment period is mainly for certain Medicare Advantage changes.
The new “Medicare Open Enrollment” (Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period) runs from January 1 through March 31 every year, starting in 2019.
When Medicare Advantage open enrollment happens each year, in most cases you can make any of the following coverage changes:
If you signed up for a Medicare Advantage plan during your Initial Coverage Election Period, you may have a chance to change to a different Medicare Advantage plan. Starting the month you’re eligible for Medicare Part A and Part B, you’ll generally have three months to switch plans.
If you don’t already have a Medicare Advantage plan, you can’t typically enroll in one during this Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period.
During new Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period, you can generally only change plans once in a given year.
Also, please note that this enrollment period doesn’t apply to other Medicare health plans, such as Medicare Savings Plans or Medicare Cost Plans.
Only you can make this decision. Are you satisfied with your current coverage under your Medicare Advantage plan?
