Searching for the best rated 2020 Medicare Advantage plans in Preble County, Ohio? You're in the right place.
Unlike prescription drug plans (Medicare Part D), which are the same statewide, Medicare Advantage plan availability and options vary by area. The reason for this is simple. Not all areas have the same healthcare providers, so localized plans are better.
How-To Enroll in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Preble County
Most people living in Ohio, 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.
Most of us also get an Individual Election Period (IEP), but it only comes around once. Your IEP is based on your 65th birthday. It starts the month before and ends the month after, so you have plenty of time.
To get enrolled:
- 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 Ohio insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
