Enrollment periods for Medicare Office services can be confusing, but the team at Health Blueprints is here to help you make sense of it all. We'll take you through the process step by step and explain the pros and cons of each period so you can make an informed decision.
The Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) is the best time to sign up, as it's the easiest time to qualify for Medicare benefits. It starts three months before the month you turn 65 and ends three months after.
Missed the IEP? There's still hope! Special Enrollment Period (SEP) is available to those who already have other coverage, like employer insurance.
The General Enrollment Period (GEP) is the annual enrollment period, taking place from January 1st to March 31st. During this time, you can sign up for a Medicare Advantage plan and Part D prescription drug plan.
Annual Election Period (AEP) is a yearly chance to make changes to your Medicare coverage. From October 15th to December 7th, you can switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan, switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another, or vice versa.
The Open Enrollment Period (OEP) is similar to the AEP, except it's exclusive to the Medicare Advantage plan and Part D drug plan. Also from October 15th to December 7th, you can make changes to your Medicare Advantage plan or Part D drug plan.
