You’re turning 65 or maybe you’re already there and the mail is beginning to pile up and it’s getting confusing. As an independent agent, I can guide you through the process of choosing the right plan, that best fits your needs. Keeping it simple, you basically have 3 choices and 4 parts. I can help explain how these all come together and make sense.
- Original Medicare (Parts A & B) with a prescription plan (Part D)
- Advantage Plans (Part C), many plans have Part D included and provide a $0 premium option.
- Medicare Supplement with a prescription plan (Part D).
- Part A: Hospital Insurance
- Part B: Medical Insurance
- Part C: Advantage Plans
- Part D: Prescription Drug Coverage
Outside of turning 65 and your initial election period, we have a few other enrollment periods. The most important period outside of your initial enrollment is the Annual Election Period which runs 10/15 – 12/7 each year. It’s important to note, marketing activities for the Annual Election Period should not start until 10/1 if it’s concerning plans for the following year. It’s a great time of the year to see if choices 1-3 above are still your best options. In addition, you may be entitled to a special election period as well These typically result from a move, a carrier exiting the market or some other circumstance warranting a guaranteed issue enrollment into a new plan.
