How-To Enroll in Medicare Advantage
Most people living in Indiana, 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).
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.
Medigap 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 Indiana Medicare Supplement Insurance and a Indiana Medicare Part D Plan (for help with your prescription drugs).
A Medicare Supplement policy protects you from big medical bills and helps you lower the total annual cost of your healthcare. See our Indiana 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.
