Looking for the top Medicare Advantage plans in Greenlee County, Arizona for 2020? You're in the right place.
While Medicare Part D and Medicare Supplement plan availability is the same throughout the state, the complexity of Medicare Advantage plans requires them to be localized. The primary reason for this is that different areas have different healthcare providers, so localized health plans offer the best choices.
How-To Enroll in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Greenlee County
Most people living in Arizona, age 65 and older, qualify to enroll in Medicare Advantage. An exception is a disqualifying illness, such as End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
You can join or switch plans during a Medicare Election Period. For most people, the Annual Election Period (AEP), which starts on 15 October and ends 7 December, is the time they update their enrollment.
There's also an Individual Election Period (IEP) that you can use once. Your IEP is a 90 day period around your 65th birthday. It starts the month before you turn 65 and ends the month after.
You can get enrolled three ways:
- 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 Arizona insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with a Arizona Supplement
If you are concerned that a Medicare Advantage plan could be inconvenient or limit your services, there is another way to get full coverage and lower your out-of-pocket costs in Greenlee County. A Arizona Medicare supplement (Medigap) and a Arizona Medicare prescription drug plan (Part D) work hand-in-hand with your Original Medicare to give you the best coverage possible.
If you are not aware of the benefits of a Medicare Supplement, and how it pays the big medical bills from an extended illness or hospital stay, check out our Medigap directory and compare Medicare supplement plans in your area. All Medicare supplements are standardized and regulated. That means you can go with the lowest cost policy and get all of the same benefits.
