Open enrollment for Medicare Part D started November 15th and runs to December 31st every year.Remember though, that Medicare “supplements” do not have an open enrollment period. The only open enrollment is the one that relates to Medicare Part D drug coverage – and that is IT. The reason this is so important to know is because a large portion of the senior population think open enrollment is for Medicare supplement plans, and that’s not the case.
You can make a change to your Medicare supplement at any time, but there are a lot of insurance companies that will ask a LOT of medical questions. Depending on the answers you happen to give, you may or may not be able to change plans. So be aware and know what you are asking.
