Comparing 2020 Medicare Advantage plans to find the best options in Seneca 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.
Who Can Enroll in Medicare Advantage in Seneca County?
If you are age 65 or older, you most likely qualify to enroll in a Ohio 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).
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 Ohio insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
