Anyone who is already enrolled or eligible to enroll in the federal Medicare program.



An enrollment period where you can make changes to your Medicare benefits. During this period, you can change from Original Medicare to Medicare Advantage (or vice versa), join or change a prescription drug plan, or drop your coverage entirely.



AEP is from October 15th through December 7th. Changes that you make will take effect on January 1 of the following year.



Medicare insurance plans can change each year. Providers can leave the network, benefits can change, and costs can change. You should review your benefits each year. Even if you decide to keep your current plan, you should at least be aware of any changes to your coverage.
