When Can You Make Changes To Your Plan?

The Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)

During this enrollment period, which runs annually from October 15th – December 7th, all Medicare beneficiaries can add, change or drop coverage.

Change from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan 

Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan to Original Medicare

Switch from a Medicare Advantage plan to another Medicare Advantage plan

Switch your Part D prescription drug plan

Drop your Part D prescription drug plan

How are You Notified of Changes to Your Plan?

Annually, you will receive notifications from the Social Security Administration, as well as your Medicare plan providers, communicating changes for the upcoming plan year. These notifications come at different times and it is crucial that you review both.

Annual Notice of Change (ANOC)

If you are currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage (Part C) or a stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plan (Part D), every September you will receive your ANOC in the mail or email. Your delivery method will be how you’ve agreed to receive plan communications.

It is extremely important to read your entire ANOC to learn about plan changes so you can properly evaluate either remaining on your current plan or consider changing your plans.

TIP:  Regardless of your drug coverage (Part C or Part D), we recommend that you confirm your medications will remain on your plan’s formulary for the upcoming year.
