Getting Enrolled in a 2020 Medicare Advantage Plan in Wisconsin
Most Wisconsin 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.
There's also an Individual Election Period (IEP) that you can use once. Your IEP is a 90 day period around your 65th birthday. It starts the month before you turn 65 and ends the month after.
You can get enrolled three ways:
- 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 Wisconsin insurance agent. This is the best way to go if you need someone to help advise you.
Original Medicare + Medigap vs. a Medicare Advantage Plan in Wisconsin
If you are worried that an HMO or PPO plan will try to limit your care, Medicare Advantage is not the only way to get full coverage. For a little more each month you can have the best care available and lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Savvy seniors hold on to their Original Medicare and get the additional coverage they need with a Wisconsin Medicare Part D Plan (prescriptions) and Wisconsin Medicare Supplement Insurance.
If you're not familiar with Medigap policies, and how they protect you from medical care liability, please review our Wisconsin 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.
