How-To Enroll in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Arizona
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).
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 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 Medicare Advantage could be inconvenient or limit your services, there is another way to get full coverage and lower your out-of-pocket costs. Arizona Medicare Supplemental Insurance and a Arizona Medicare Part D Plan (for prescriptions) 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, 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.
