Annual Enrollment Period (AEP)
-- Medicare's Annual Enrollment Period
(AEP) is October 15 through December 7 each year. Elections made during the Annual
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.
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. For more
