Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Tennessee
Most Tennessee seniors qualify to join a Medicare Advantage plan. Certain diseases, most notably End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), may disqualify you from enrollment.
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).
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 Tennessee insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Tennessee 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 Tennessee Medicare Supplement Insurance and a Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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.
