Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Arizona
Most Arizona seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
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.
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 Arizona insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Arizona Medigap Plan vs. Medicare Advantage, Which is Better?
Medicare Advantage is one way to get full coverage healthcare. You also have the option to hold on to your Original Medicare PFFS benefits and upgrade your coverage with Arizona Medicare Supplement Insurance and a Arizona Medicare Part D Plan (for help with your prescription drugs).
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, visit our Arizona Medigap Plans page. All Medicare Supplements are standardized and regulated. That means you can go with the lowest cost policy and get all of the same benefits.
