Getting Enrolled in Medicare Advantage
Most Connecticut seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
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).
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 insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Original Medicare + Medigap vs. Medicare Advantage
If you are worried that an HMO or PPO plan will try to limit your care, Medicare Advantage is not the only way to get full coverage. For a little more each month you can have the best care available and lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Savvy seniors hold on to their Original Medicare and get the additional coverage they need with a Connecticut Medicare Part D Plan (prescriptions) and Connecticut Medicare Supplement Insurance.
If you're not familiar with Medigap policies, and how they protect you from medical care liability, please review our Connecticut 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.
