Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Georgia
Most Georgia seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
You are only allowed to join, drop or change plans during a Medicare Election Period. The period between 15 October and 7 December is the Annual Election Period (AEP). That's when most folks make changes to their Medicare.
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 Georgia insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Original Medicare + Medigap vs. a Medicare Advantage Plan in Georgia
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 Georgia Medicare Part D Plan (prescriptions) and Georgia Medicare Supplement Insurance.
A Medicare Supplement policy protects you from big medical bills and helps you lower the total annual cost of your healthcare. See our Georgia Medigap Plans page for more information. The good news is that all supplemental insurance is standardized, offering you the luxury to buy the coverage you need based on the lowest price.
