Getting Enrolled in Medicare Advantage
Most Colorado 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 insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with a 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. Colorado Medicare Supplemental Insurance and a Colorado Medicare Part D Plan (for prescriptions) work hand-in-hand with your Original Medicare to give you the best coverage possible.
If you're not familiar with Medigap policies, and how they protect you from medical care liability, please review our Colorado Medigap Plans page. All Medigap plans are standardized. That means you can chose the plan you need based on best price without worrying about the benefits.
