Who Can Enroll in Medicare Advantage?
If you are age 65 or older, you most likely qualify to enroll in a Nevada Medicare Advantage plan available in your county. If you have End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), you will need to stay on Original Medicare.
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.
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.
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. Nevada Medicare Supplemental Insurance and a Nevada 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 Nevada 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.
