When and How to Enroll in a California Medicare Advantage Plan

AEP ends on the 7th of December, and your new plan election starts on the 1st of January. If you are new to Medicare, you are given a one-time Initial Enrollment Period (IEP). For most folks, their IEP happens then they reach age 65. In rare cases, Medicare will grant a special enrollment period.

Obamacare vs. a California Medicare Advantage Plan

Concerned that Obamacare is doing away with or cutting your Medicare Advantage benefits or choices? Don’t worry, it’s not. At least not in 2014. California seniors still have all of the same benefits and choices. The new healthcare law (ACA) leaves MA plans alone, from your perspective, but adds new regulations for the insurance carriers.

Here are some additional facts about your California State Health Insurance Exchange. First, it’s not for California seniors with Medicare or those with Medicare Disability, and you can’t trade your Medicare benefits for a plan on your state exchange. Second, your state’s health exchange won’t help you with additional benefits, regardless of your income level. If you need Extra Help, visit your local Social Security Administration office. Learn more about Obamacare at www.HealthCare.gov.
