How-To Enroll in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Virginia
Most people living in Virginia, age 65 and older, qualify to enroll in Medicare Advantage. An exception is a disqualifying illness, such as End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
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.
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 Virginia insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Medicare Advantage vs. Original Medicare with a Virginia 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. Virginia Medicare Supplemental Insurance and a Virginia Medicare Part D Plan (for prescriptions) work hand-in-hand with your Original Medicare to give you the best coverage possible.
A Medicare Supplement policy protects you from big medical bills and helps you lower the total annual cost of your healthcare. See our Virginia 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.
