How-To Enroll in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Missouri
Most people living in Missouri, age 65 and older, qualify to enroll in Medicare Advantage. An exception is a disqualifying illness, such as End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
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.
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 Missouri insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Missouri Medigap Plan 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 Missouri Medicare Supplement Insurance and a Missouri Medicare Part D Plan (for help with your prescription drugs).
If you're not familiar with Medigap policies, and how they protect you from medical care liability, please review our Missouri Medigap Plans page. All Medigap plans are standardized. That means you can choose the plan you need based on the best price without worrying about the benefits.
