Enrollment Periods: Medicare has several enrollment periods that are important to understand.
- Initial Election Period (IEP) - When you first become eligible for Medicare (for most this is when they turn 65) you are able to enroll in the 7 months surrounding your birthday.
- Annual Election Period (AEP) - Occurs between October 15 and December 7 every year. During AEP, you can switch coverage with no restrictions. You may join or leave a Medicare Advantage Plan and you can add or remove prescription drug coverage.
- Special Enrollment Period (SEP) - There are a number of circumstances that could create the need to change coverage. The SEP provides the opportunity to change plans due to circumstances like relocating outside a Plan's service area, a plan leaving your service area, becoming disabled, or if you feel like you enrolled in a plan based on receiving misleading information.
