Important Dates  -- Medicare's Open Enrollment Period begins October 15, 2014 and closes December 7, 2014. Coverage begins January 1, 2015. Plan benefits and cost-sharing may change from year to year.

Glossary  -- Medicare Advantage Plan (MA Plan), Medicare Advantage Plan with Prescription Drug Coverage (MA/PD Plan), Stand-alone Prescription Drug Plan (PDP).

Open Enrollment Period (OEP)  -- Medicare's Open Enrollment Period (OEP) is October 15 through December 7 each year. Elections made during the Open Enrollment Period take effect January 1 of the following year.

Initial Enrollment Period (IEP)  -- The Initial Enrollment Period (IEP) is the period during which an individual is first eligible to enroll in a Medicare plan. Individuals who are becoming eligible for Medicare will have an Initial Enrollment Period that is the seven (7) month period surrounding Medicare eligibility (same as the IEP for Part B). That is, the initial enrollment period is the three (3) months before becoming eligible for Medicare, the month of eligibility, and the three (3) months following eligibility. Individuals first eligible for Medicare based on disability, who subsequently lose Medicare entitlement, have another Initial Enrollment Period. Individuals first eligible for Medicare based on disability who do not have a lapse in Medicare entitlement prior to their turning 65 do not have an additional Initial Enrollment Period. If you believe you are entitled to a plan as a result of an IEP, please feel free to contact us to discuss it and/or you may call the Customer Service Department.

Medicare Advantage Disenrollment Period (MADP)  -- From January 1 through February 14, anyone enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan has an opportunity to disenroll from that plan and return to Original Medicare. Also from January 1 through February 14, you can add drug coverage to Original Medicare by joining a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan.

Special Election Period (SEP)  -- During a Special Election Period (SEP), an individual may change health plans or return to Original Medicare.

Extra Help  -- People with limited incomes may qualify for Extra Help to pay for their prescription drug costs. If eligible, Medicare could pay up to one-hundred (100) percent of drug costs including monthly prescription drug premiums, annual deductibles, and coinsurance. Additionally, those who qualify will not be subject to the coverage gap or a late enrollment penalty. Many people are eligible for these savings and don't even know it.
