Learn about Medicare at our educational sessions. We'll talk about eligibility, enrollment and information about the different parts of Medicare. These sessions do not include Medicare plan-specific information due to federal regulations.
You are eligible for Medicare if you are a legal U.S. resident and one of the following applies to you:
This is the seven-month period in which you can enroll in Medicare for the first time. If you are enrolling for the first time due to disability, your IEP timing is based on your disability date.
You can make changes to your medical and prescription drug coverage every year from Oct. 15–Dec. 7. Your changes are effective Jan. 1 of the following year.
From Jan. 1 - March 31, if you currently have a Medicare Advantage plan you may switch to another Medicare Advantage plan, or disenroll from your current Medicare Advantage plan and return to Original Medicare.
This is a period when Medicare recipients may change medical and prescription drug coverage outside of AEP, if they meet certain requirements and have a qualifying event, such as moving to a new service area or leaving an employer-based plan. Learn more about SEP.
