Who Can Enroll in Medicare Advantage?
If you are age 65 or older, you most likely qualify to enroll in a Nevada Medicare Advantage plan available in your county. If you have End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), you will need to stay on Original Medicare.
There are several different Medicare Election Periods. This is when you can join or change your plan. Most people wait until 15 October to 7 December to make enrollment changes. This is the Annual Election Period (AEP).
You also have an Individual Election Period (IEP). Your IEP begins the month before your 65th birthday, includes your birth month, and continues the month after your birth month.
There are three ways to enroll:
- Call a plan directly. If you know the plan you want, this way is quick and easy.
- Go to www.Medicare.gov and enroll through the government website. From there you can look up your medications, compare plans, and get your application started online.
- Use an independent insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Original Medicare + Medigap vs. Medicare Advantage
If you are worried that an HMO or PPO plan will try to limit your care, Medicare Advantage is not the only way to get full coverage. For a little more each month you can have the best care available and lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Savvy seniors hold on to their Original Medicare and get the additional coverage they need with a Nevada Medicare Part D Plan (prescriptions) and Nevada Medicare Supplement Insurance.
If you're not familiar with Medigap policies, and how they protect you from medical care liability, please review our Nevada Medigap Plans page. All Medigap plans are standardized. That means you can chose the plan you need based on best price without worrying about the benefits.
