Well, the Medicare open enrollment period for 2023 is upon us!
And if you’ve got a Medicare Advantage plan or a Medigap plan, a Part D drug plan, or a combination of a couple of those, you’ll learn what you can change and when you need to do it by so you don’t get yourself into trouble this year.
The Medicare open enrollment period is a designated period of time that Medicare allows people to make certain changes.
This runs from October 15 through December 7.
Now, this period is technically called the Medicare Annual election period, or AEP. Most people simply call it the enrollment period, so we’ll go with that…
Most of the changes that take place during this time will go into effect the following January 1.
Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment 2023
If you currently have a Medicare supplement plan, you can change your plan now because you can do that anytime during the year. Call us today at 1-888-891-0229 if you already have a Medicare supplement plan, there’s no need to wait!
For those wanting to leave their Medicare Advantage plan for 2023, you should still call us today so we can begin the process of changing you over to a Medicare supplement plan.
If approved, your new Medicare supplement plan will begin on January 1st of 2023. It’s better to start now rather than wait until the enrollment period as things get very backed up during that time.
Can I Change Medicare Supplement Plans Anytime?
Yes! If you’re moving from a Medicare supplement plan to another Medicare supplement plan, that does not fall under the open enrollment period.
You can do that anytime per year. In fact, we do it about 12 to 15 times a day for people all year long.
Did you recently get a rate increase? Don’t wait to change your Medigap plan, we can help you change now.
Medicare Part D 2023
If you are enrolled in a Medicare Part D drug plan, the Medicare open enrollment period is the one time per year you are able to change your plan.
Your new Medicare Part D plan will begin on January 1st of 2023.
Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment 2023
Anyone who is currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan and is wanting to change to another Advantage plan can do so in the Medicare open enrollment period (October 15th – December 7th). Their new plan will go into effect on January 1st.
If you currently are enrolled in a Medicare supplement plan or just Medicare Part A and B, and you’re wanting to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, then you will need to do this during the open enrollment period.
Call today for help! Our phone number is 1-888-891-0229.
How to Change Medicare Plans in 2023
Regardless of which Medicare plan you’re interested in, it’s best to get the process started right away.
Underwriting departments of all the insurance carriers get backed up tremendously every year.
This is because they have so many applicants that they have to process during the open enrollment period.
So, call us today at 1-888-891-0229 so we can begin that process now.
Medicare Part D Plans for 2023
Remember, you can apply to change from a Medicare supplement to another supplement anytime during the year, but if you want to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you will need to wait until October 15th to do that.
Then your coverage will begin on January 1 of the following year.
But what about Part D drug plan coverage?
Well, you can only change your part D drug plan once per year.
For 2023, this time period is October 5th – December 7th of 2022.
Coverage with your new plan will go into effect on January 1st of the next year.
So don’t miss this period and let us help you look at the options for next year!
