Looking for the top Medicare Advantage plans in New Mexico for 2020? Fantastic, but you'll need to take just one more small step. Medicare Advantage plans are different in each County, so you'll need to go to the area where you live (below). Here's why.
Unlike Medicare Part D prescription drug plans, which are a statewide option, Medicare Advantage Plans vary by county. The reason for this is simple. Not all areas have the same healthcare resources or needs, so county-by-county plans work better. Click on your County to get started.
Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan
Most New Mexico seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
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 New Mexico 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 New Mexico Medicare Supplement Insurance and a New Mexico 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 New Mexico 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.
