It’s just around the corner! Medicare Advantage Part C and Medicare Part D Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) will soon be here. Starting October 15, you will be able to sign up for or switch to a new Part C or Part D plan. This will continue until Pearl Harbor Day, December 7. Any new changes will go into effect for January 1, 2021. REMEMBER: Medicare Supplements do NOT have a guaranteed enrollment period after you first sign up for Part B. If you want to change to a new supplement, you will have to pass the new insurance company’s medical question, BUT, you CAN change from a Medicare Supplement to a Medicare Advantage plan with NO medical questions…
