Medicare Advantage Enrollment Guide

The Medicare enrollment period cycle begins with the Annual Enrollment period (commonly know as the Medicare Open Enrollment Period, AEP). This Medicare Enrollment Period runs from October 15 to December 7 each year. This period is then followed by the Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment period or MA OEP, which runs from January 1 to March 31 each year. Outside of these two enrollment periods, there are other Medicare enrollment periods called Special Enrollment Period, which allows enrollment into a Medicare Advantage plan based on "special" circumstances.

Medicare AEP runs during the fourth quarter of the year from October 15 to December 7. During this period you can get into, change, switch or cancel your Medicare plan and coverage. Whether you have a Medicare Advantage plan, a Medicare Supplement plan or just Original Medicare, this is the timeframe for you to set your Medicare coverage exactly how you want it to be for the upcoming year without needing a special enrollment period. Actually, you can change your mind about which benefits or plans you want as many times during that period. The decision you make last by December 7, is the plan and benefits that will go into effect.

The last plan you enroll in will be effective as of January 1 of the upcoming year and you generally keep that plan until the next Annual enrollment period comes back around the following year. Of course, there are other enrollment periods coming up that gives you another chance to upgrade your benefits.
