Here are a few things to know about the Fall Open Enrollment!

Open Enrollment is from October 15th to December 7th of every year.

  • If you enroll in a plan during Fall Open Enrollment, your coverage will start on January 1st.
  • It is the only time you can pick a new Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D plan.
  • You can switch to Original Medicare if you have Medicare Advantage.

You will need to review coverage.

  • If you have Original Medicare, find out the costs and benefits for the upcoming year. If you’re unsatisfied with your Original Medicare coverage, you can make changes during this open enrollment period. The changes will take effect on the 1st January of the following year.
  • Even if you are satisfied with your current Medicare coverage, take action and look at other Medicare options in your area that may better suit you or your needs in the upcoming year.
